Lake Tenno pic n°3:
It is nestled in the greenery of the Mediterranean vegetation and is characterized by an intense turquoise color and a delightful islet that stands in the center. Around the lake, there are many medieval villages such as Tenno with its charming historic center and stone-paved alleys. The villages of Frapporta and that Canale di Tenno are just as suggestive as the one before, they are two gems survived intact since the Middle Ages.
Lake Toblino pic n°1:
It is located in the heart of the Valle dei Laghi (Lakes's Valley), connected by a narrow channel to lake Santa Massenza. On the left side, a small peninsula enters the lake where the Castle of Toblino stands: it is a very romantic and highly photographed place. In the nearby village of Tione, is located the ancient church of Madonna del Carmine with a beautiful baroque altar of high artistic value.
Lake Tovel central pic:
It is located in the heart of the Brenta Dolomites and until a few decades ago it was called "Lake of Blood" for the sudden coloring of the waters in red very similar to blood. This was probably caused because of some strange environmental changes that affected the algae or protozoa reproductions. Today this phenomenon does not happen (or only very slightly) as in the past, but photographs of the past are still there to testify to it. Anyway, Lake Tovel whether turquoise or blood-colored is still one of the most spectacular lakes in the Dolomites and South Tyrol.
