Worth Visiting

Located in the northern part of the province of Rome, Lake Bracciano, also known as Lake Sabatino, is a jewel of volcanic origin, reaching a maximum depth of 160 meters. Recognized as one of the cleanest lakes in Europe, these waters have supplied the capital since the time of the Roman Empire through a complex system of aqueducts.

History

Recent excavations in the lake have revealed a fascinating chapter in prehistory: a submerged Neolithic village, dating from between 5700 and 5200 BCE. This settlement, consisting of seven large rectangular houses, covered an area of about 25,000 square meters. It is believed to have been abandoned due to a sudden flood.

Nature

The clear waters of Lake Bracciano are a haven for a wide variety of fish, while its shores are home to lush flora and fauna. This biological wealth, along with nearby Lake Martignano, also of volcanic origin, led to the creation of the Bracciano-Martignano Regional Park, a protected area that aims to preserve its priceless naturalistic value.
