The oasis of San Giuliano is one of the protected areas of the Italian WWF. The area, which extends for about 1,000 hectares, is mostly occupied by an artificial pond made in the 1950s.

The rest comprises part of the river Bradano ravine, characterised by a deep canyon, and a stretch of the river up the lake.

The flora around the pond is very varied and alternates a strip of conifers and eucalyptuses with areas with strips of Mediterranean maquis with lentisk, wild pear, Christ's thorn, juniper, mock privet, hawthorn and pubescent oak.

The fauna is also very rich thanks to the presence of great white egrets, purple herons, cormorants, widgeons, teals, storks, sea eagles and mammals such as foxes, badgers, porcupines, wild boars and otters.
