Lago di Vagli

  • Lago di Vagli

    This beautiful lake, north-west of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, is rich in wildlife and popular with walkers for the many paths around its shores. Lago di Vagli has a secret. It is, in fact, man-made, created by the ENEL electricity company when it built the nearby dam. To provide hydro-electricity to the surrounding area, the valley needed to be flooded, including the village of Fabbriche di Careggine, the inhabitants of which were re-housed.

    Every 10 years, the lake is drained for maintenance work to be carried out. As the waters recede, the village reappears, watched by locals and visitors alike, who are then able to wander around the remains of the church and other buildings.

    It is also known as ‘Paese Fantasma’ (ghost village) and some say that strange events and miracles have taken place since the village was flooded. The next date for the lake to be drained is in 2024. However, it is possible to see the church tower when the water level is low. Boats can be hired at Vagli Sotto and directions will be given to the drowned village.
