    Different views, see it in the summer by a different suggestion. So many people; beautiful promenade surrounding great Lake. Magnificent village overlooking this beautiful Lake. Recommended

    From the small village of barrea you have a breathtaking view, don't miss the pedestrian trails located on the shores of Lake and finally a nice dip in the water

    everything beautifully, to visit many things, clean beaches x the bathers, the only flaw hardly find parking spots for the disabled, not controlled by anyone, especially the month of August, however I will return
