Lago Santo literally means "holy lake". It is situated around 1200 meters on the sea level. It is of glacial origin. The names of this lake derives from a legend. Here it is. Two brothers were struggling for the ownership of a piece of land where today stands the lake. One of them sick and tired about this situation said he would have liked that ground to become a lake. Since that moment the ground was flooded and the water was threating the village near the lake. Then the inhabitant of this village, worried about this danger informed the village's priest about this problem and took him there. He threw his ring on the soil and the flood stopped.
This small lake is located some km from Cembra.
Apparently this lake is a good fishing place.
This small lake is situated 1079 meters on the sea level. It covers a surface area of 64000 mq.
Here you can wander around it, lay under the sun or rent a pedal boat. There are two beaches by the lake.
Lavarone is a plateau formed by 22 villages. There are some buses every day from Trento to this place. The travel takes more or less one hour and a half.
One of the villages I like very much is Piccoli. There are only few beautiful stone houses and a small church built on a rock. There aren't any restaurants, bars shops in there.
One of the highlights of Lavarone is Fort Belvedere. This Austro-Hungarian fort was built between 1908 and 1914. It is a huge building that hosts a first world war museum.
Lavarone also has a nice small lake.
This place is made of five churches linked toghether by a steep staircase of 131 steps.
The buildings were built in different periods. The oldest one dates back to 1000 a. D.
It lies on a rock 90 m. tall.
