Corsica - Lac de Capitello

Lac de Capitello is a lake in Corsica, which is located 2200m high in the high valley of Restonica. The nearest village is Corte which is 15km away. It takes two to three hours climbing up the mountains to reach this place.

With 42 meter the lake is the deepest one in Corsica and is frozen eight month in the year.
To enjoy the view and the beauty you have to get up early, because in the summer months it gets a bit crowded about noon.
