  • The lake is also located in the municipalities of Grumento Nova and Montemurro. A dam, built at the beginning of the second half of the 20th century along the Agri River, artificially forms, in the Upper Val d'Agri, the Lake stone of Pertusillo, named after the river passes in a pertugio between the rocks. Essentially the dam was created for hydroelectric purposes, but the lake water is also used for irrigation of the fields and the distribution of drinking water. In the lake you can practice sports fishing (with the permission of the Apennine Park Lucano Val d'Agri Lagonegrese) and rowing. Cycling, hiking, hiking and bird-watching can be used in the surrounding areas. Despite the environmental impact of the work, the care and respect of the natural habitat has allowed various species of animals and plants to fit in and proliferate in the naturalistic context. It is a wonderfully rugged environment and rich vegetation, where the forest goes all the way, but in some places even beyond, the shore of the lake.

  • A magical place! I was there on Sunday 22 October because of the Chestnut festival. The weather was great, it didn't make it too cold and it's too hot, only a few times it was passing a few clouds but the sun was present and heated all. Watching this magnificence of Lake would put tranquility to anyone. Beautiful, I will definitely return

  • Beautiful place... But little valued

  • Great place to go for a walk, to relax or to take a field trip. Too bad it's largely untapped by the local authorities, as it would have a huge potential. Ideal place to take a walk, relax or take a picnic. Too bad that it is little exploited by local authorities, as it would have enormous potential.
