  • Absolutely gorgeous place to visit. Located on the road from Anversa degli Abruzzi leads to Scanno and belongs to the municipality of Villalago. The lake water is emerald green. From the Church behind the altar there is the entrance to the Hermitage of San Domenico which is a cave carved into the rock where the bed of the Saint a true wonder!

  • Dear friends and dear friends I recommend you go: not only because this Hermitage is set in stone but also because it dominates on this Lake, and then entering into the Lake for a swim and just soak your feet (put some rubber shoes or sneakers because the bottom is full of stones and then the water's location in front of the Hermitage there is a small waterfall). the three of us got wet feet and oi we made a stop in the provided picnic area and then continue towards the waterfall. Nice and interesting to do

  • The Hermitage of San Domenico, next to the Lake, where is the cave, which according to tradition was excavated from around the year 1000, and the Church. The Hermitage is an important shrine in the religious life of both villalaghesi and other towns in the area. The Lake has a really very special fascination for me. You either love it or don't appreciate it at all. I like. When people ask me what's beautiful to look at a Lake frankly I can't answer. Maybe the best thing is the feeling of peace that you try to stay down there, alone with themselves, silently, without the colors of the reefs and fish to admire, but absolutely alone. In the Lake there are the "distractions" that are in the sea, but the sensations you feel intimately are really intense. Words fail to describe in full these feelings.

  • Very relaxing place with picnic tables.
  • Going up towards the Lake you will come across this Hermitage, where there is also a church. According to tradition here dwelt San Domenico abate, a Benedictine monk. There are some paintings depicting the Saint's life. You can admire the cave carved into the rock where the monk lived. The Hermitage is located on the shore of the Lake and is accessible via a bridge along which there are the stations of the cross. A small nearby bar ensures a frugal refreshment.

  • Lovely place, very nice water color shades. The church conceals behind a door with a small picturesque path the cave where he lived and died a hermit. Not everyone knows this.

  • Little gem of worship and history. The cave where in the year 1000 about lived San Domenico and the chapel built in his devotion. at the foot of Lake San Domenico splendid to relax and picnic. Parking though prohibitive being in a rocky ravine walls including Groove is located. Lake provided you can defy its icy waters
