The magic of the lakes
The Cadore lakes are places where all the splendor of the Cadore valley is concentrated.
Lakes are not only mirrors of water but they enhance the beauty of the surrounding places. Looking at them you can not only see water but the reflection of mountains and sky giving a sense of peace and relaxation.
In Cadore one of the most beautiful lakes that can be seen and certainly Lake Misurina born more than 20,000 years ago during the last glaciation without taking anything away from Lake Centro Cadore which takes the whole valley and Lake Auronzo where you can mirror the most beautiful Dolomite peaks such as the Tre Cime di Lavaredo.
