Lake Tovel is located at 1178 m above sea level in Trentino Alto-Adige, near the Dolomits mountains. Precisely, this site is located in the territory of the municipality of Ville d’Anaunia in Val di Non, in the province of Trento. Until about the 1980s, one very curious thing occurred: the surface of the lake turned red. Italian Traditions explains to you why Lake Tovel used to turn red in the past.
