    Lago di San Domenico, of more modest dimensions, is an artificial, created after World War I by Enel for electric supply needs (through a dam that feeds the pipes placed further downstream after Antwerp). It is famous for the adjoining shrine of San Domenico and the important regional natural reserve named del Lago di San Domenico and Lago Pio. The latter, recognized with regional law No 6 of 2/8/2005, consists of about 30 hectares and was created to safeguard biodiversity and the habitats of numerous plant and animal species in the area, characterized by high slopes with cliffs and rocky environments. The reserve is divided in two areas: one corresponding to the Lago di San Domenico, characterized by Enel and the springs of the River Dam Sagittarius is a magical place to relax for picnics. This basin, with a characteristic deep emerald green colour, is rich in Trout; Here we also find the Mallard and colonies of white geese. From Lake trails, immersed in the Green suggestions through woods and Lake, some connecting the Lake with the adjacent mountains, others are linked with the town of Villalago.
