Martignano Lake is a secret gem that has miraculously escaped the destructive powers of development and, as a result, remains in pristine condition.

“The Pearl of the Sabatini Hills”, Lake Martignano lies in an extinct volcanic crater 207 meters above sea level and was very popular among the ancient Romans. Emperor Augustus built the region’s first aqueduct to supply water for the naval battle reenactments in Trastevere in Rome.

Thanks to its distance from major roads and human settlements, and for not allowing motor boats to get into the lake, it is a miracle of ecological purity.
