Lake Bino

Overview

Ancient evidence of the Ice Age

In the Val Nure, an area running through the Apennines of Piacenza, lies a body of water of glacial origin. A popular destination for many hikers, Lake Bino is found in the municipality of Ferriere, downstream of an elliptical depression, about 1,300 metres above sea level. 

The lake is set in a fairytale landscape and stretches out with its characteristic elongated oval shape, within a basin lined with small streams and dotted with colourful water lily blooms. For thousands of years, Lake Bino is proof of the modelling carried out on the Apennine ridge by ice sheets present in the upper Nure Valley, which, due to its rugged conformation, has preserved naturalistic-environmental aspects that are difficult to find in other areas of the province or, more generally, Emilia-Romagna.

The shores of the lake are rocky and full of debris, due to fragments of the mountain walls looming over the basin. Throughout the course of the year, the level of the pond fluctuates greatly, shrinking considerably in summer, when it takes on the dimensions of a modest pond.

If you love sports and being surrounded by nature, this is the place for you. Many footpaths lead to Lake Bino, for great outdoor activities.
