Lake of Capitello Toute la corse
Lakes | Corsica
The lake of Capitello is a lake located in the high valley of the river Restonica, about 10 km from Corte.
It is the fourth natural mountain lake with regards to its size and the first by depth (42m). Surrounded by summits peaking at 2 230 meters, the lake is frozen more than eight months a year. In the high season, the Capitello can be very busy, and this is not without consequences for such a sensitive environment. The site has been declared "Conservation area" since 1966, and we can observe the presence of the golden eagle (aigle royal) and the bearded lammergeyer (gypaète barbu).
