This diving site is inside the largest area of the No-Take
Zone. The diving routes have been set up and are managed by two centres: “G.S.
Montagnana” – Montagnana (Padua) and “Metamauco Sub” – Padua. To celebrate the 25th
anniversary from its foundation, the Gruppo Subacqueo di Montagnana placed a
statue of Our Lady of Medugorje on the seabed of the Tegnùa. The rocky outcrop
belongs to one of the main structures of the Tegnùe of Chioggia and is on the
opposite side of the P204 site (Sub Mestre). The surrounding sea bottom is around 20-21 metres deep while rock depth
is less than 17 metres. The rocks form a long cordillera in north-south-east
direction. The south-west side is very sheer while the north-east side gently
declines and is gradually covered with sand. There is abundance of Porifera in
benthic sessile populations: among these Geodia cydonium sponges, remarkable for
their size and number.
