The lake of Scanno, located at 950 meters above sea level surrounded by the Majella National Park and the National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise, is a natural and unspoiled place famous for its unique atmosphere.
The lake of Scanno is 1 km from the village and if observed from some vantage points you can see its shape of heart.
Scanno, a historic and famous mountain village, classified as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, is a municipality in the province of L'Aquila located in 1050 mt above sea level in central Italy in the Abruzzo region.
A medieval village that thanks to its evocative atmosphere has been portrayed by famous photographers including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Mario Giacomelli and Gianni Berengo Gardin.
Lake Scanno, which can be reached in just over an hour from both Rome and Pescara along a panoramic highway that crosses the Apennines, has been the heart of XTERRA Italy for several years.
