Things to see
Lake Misurina is located 1754 meters above sea level and is about five meters deep with a perimeter of 2.6 kilometers. It is surrounded by different beautiful mountains: in the north we can see the summit of Tre Cime di Lavaredo (2999 meters), in the West is Monte Cristallo (3 221 meters) while in the East is the Gruppo dei Cadini. Finally, in the south is Mount Sorapiss, which is clearly reflected on the water. Lake Misurina is also surrounded by a great forest composed of many conifers and fir trees.
The different mountains around the lake still have vestiges from World War I, including military roads, tunnels, caves and shacks. Now a quiet place, Queen Margherita of Savoy chose Lake Misurina as a holiday destination after her husband King Umberto I was assassinated by the anarchist Gaetano Bresci. The lake is not simply a popular holiday attraction; given that the air there is so pure, an important clinic that specializes in curing children with asthma was built to take advantage of it.
