The history of 3 Comuni Lake
Cavazzo Lake, also known as 3 Comuni Lake, is the largest natural lake in Friuli-Venezia Giulia and covers an area of 1.74 square kilometres.
Originated by the withdrawal of a glacier, it’s 195 meters on the sea level at the foothills of the mountains Festa and San Simeone. As a result of the glacier’s withdrawal, it is lower on the sea level than the Tagliamento river that flows 3 kilometres away.
Currently the lake is fed both artificially from Ambiesta and Verzegnis waters and naturally by some natural groundwater sources which turn out to be veritable holes.
According to an ancient legend the lake was born from sky tears dropped as rain.
