Lake of Barrea
Perched on a spur in the middle of the Sagittario
Valley, one of the most beautiful
areas in L'Aquila province, it is a tourist
resort for summer and winter sports; tourists
are offered leisure facilities, natural
beauties and art, folklore, handicraft (goldsmith's
and pillow lace's art). (Scanno, 1100 mt).
The blocking up of the river Tasso because
of a landslip that slid down Mount
Genzana originated the lake, fed
by the above-mentioned river.
You can enjoy the lake
especially in summer. In the several small
but well-equipped beaches you can go for
a swim, hire pedalos, windsurfs, canoes,
deckchairs and sunshades.
Scanno is one of the most
beautiful and equipped winter tourist resort
in Central and Southern Italy. It has two
ski centres that can meet skiers' requirements
thanks to extremely modern skilifts and
well-kept ski slopes for cross-country skiing.
