Cembra, il Lago Santo

Located five kilometres away from the town of Cembra, Lake Santo is of glacial origin and is a very evocative water mirror. As a local legend goes, the place where the lake is today, used to be a piece of land that its heirs were bitterly fighting over. One of them, exasperated, wished the land would turn into a lake. From that moment on, water began to rise up from under ground, threatening to flood Cembra underlying town. Worried about the impending danger, the town's inhabitants went on a pilgrimage to worship the land, and when the town priest threw the Madonna's ring onto the ground the water stopped flowing. So the place has been called Lake Santo. The lake is the starting-point for numerous outings on foot or on horseback, and is the ideal place for fishing and sunbathing. In winter the surface freezes and is suitable for curling.
