#5 of 8 in Things to do in Enna
Lake Pergusa is a lake in Sicily, set between a group of mountains in the Erean Mountains chain near Pergusa, 5 km from Enna, Italy. It is a vital stop in the migratory trajectory of a great number of birds. In addition to birds, which are by far the main inhabitants of the Pergusa nature reserve, there are also interesting species of mammals, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates found here. At an elevation of 670 m, the lake's surface area is 1.83 km².OverviewThe lake is encircled by the most important racing track of Southern Italy, the Autodromo di Pergusa, that hosts international competitions and events, such as Formula One, Formula 3000 and a Ferrari Festival that has featured Formula One star Michael Schumacher.In the area of Lake Pergusa, an archeological site known as Cozzo Matrice can be found. This site essentially houses the ruins of an old fortified village, containing imposing walls constructed around the 9th millennium BC, a sacred citadel, an opulent necropolis and the remains of an ancient temple dedicated to Demeter, dating back more than 2,000 years.An important forest and vegetation zone named Selva Pergusina (meaning "Pergusa Wood") surrounds part of the Lake Pergusa Valley, producing a striking panorama.

    A big disappointment not be able to do is drive around the circuit, without being able to get close to the Lake. The only point of the Park is in a parking lot next to the entrance of closed, inexplicably, in which it would have been nice to walk around. Of the Lords of the place they indicated a login to go to the Lake, accessible only if you cross the track. However we only got a small footbridge of cement, surrounded by dead animals floating.

    Curious pond surrounded by a disused racetrack. Could and should be exploited better but still worth a stroll

    Immense stretches of Golden grain paint oasis of nature sweet. Great for relaxing with friends, organize tours and activities for enthusiasts. For the more adventurous for the night proper equipment is recommended.
