The lake had been created by a gigantic landslide from the Mountain Genzana that had blocked the Sagittario Valley. It is situated at 922 meters asl and its maximum depth reaches 36 meters. Due to the limestone bottom its water is very clear and the lake boasts blue flags for purity of water.

When you look at the lake from its shore the water is crystal clear and azure. It costs the pain to drive up the mountain to the picturesque Frattura town in order to see the lake in its full splendor. Its shape resembles of a heart and the water becomes dark grey. In the vicinity of lake there are situated beautiful ancient towns. See more photos of the Scanno Lake.
