  • Two small lakes behind the Strait of Messina dovevTirreno and Ionian sea meet, a splendid and unexpected landscape

  • In Ganzirri lie two lakes: the great Lake or Bog Big, better known as the Lago di Ganzirri, and the small lake or Swamp Small, Lake lighthouse. Both are directly connected with the Ionian Sea and the Tyrrhenian Sea. They are very interesting places to stroll around and admire the cultivation of mussels and mussels, in General. You will find many restaurants to eat fresh fish or enjoy an ice cream. If you go to Messina Council to visit them.

  • Lovely and quaint. The village is a wedding favor and see this strip of land (Ganzirri) between the Lake and the sea is priceless!

  • Nice lake on Capo Peloro
  • Among the most beautiful and fascinating of the coast road north of Messina, must surely include the Lago di Ganzirri (Pantano Grande) and Faro (Paco), a must for tourists and Messina tied to cultural and historical roots. The two bodies of water are approximately 9 km. from the Centre of Messina and are placed right on the northernmost tip of Sicily. In fact until the 19th century there was also a third pond, the quagmire of Margi which was reclaimed by the Bourbons. Etymologically the name Ganzirri derives from Arabic Gadir, which means "swamp, morass." This etymology seems plausible, given that in antiquity the entire Lakes area was swampy, and only after the first appropriations and the rise of residential buildings, was a progressive reclamation of the area.

  • Brackish Lake within the nature reserve of "Punta del Faro". Strolling along the shore, especially on the North, you can see and observe several seabirds including the Heron, grey heron and the cormorant.

  • Nice place, sometimes there's too much dirt on the pavement but otherwise, nice atmosphere.
