In the middle of Sicily, here it is this lake set between a group of mountains in the Erean Mountains.
It is a vital stop in the migratory trajectory of a great number of birds.
The lake is also inhabited of sedentary species such as the coot, gulls and moorhens. Also present were the weasel, and porcupine.
On the little mountain overlooking the lake, is set the archeological site of Cozzo Matrice where still be seen the remains of an ancient temple dedicated to Demeter, dating back more than 2,000 years.
There is also a cave where the legend put the capture of Persephone that, from this hole, was brought to the underworld by Hades !
