Lake & Nature

Thanks to the mountains and its lake, Lugano is endowed with a natural heritage of rare beauty.  Of glacial origin, Lake Ceresio covers an area of 5 square kilometers and its deepest point lies 288 meters below the surface.  There are many panoramic viewpoints from which to admire it and an equal abundance of botanical parks and gardens along its shores.  An oasis created by man with passion and love, perfectly integrated in an enchanting and bountiful natural setting.
