Lake Santa Croce, a beauty mirror

Lake Santa Croce is one of the “Wonders” of the Conca dell’Alpago. It is a natural lake whose basin was artificially enlarged in the 1930s. 4 km long and 2 km wide, with a maximum depth of 44 metres, it is the second largest lake in the Veneto region, after Lake Garda. It is characterized by a thermal wind blowing from the south northwards from early afternoon until evening.

Lake Santa Croce generally enjoys the thermal wind from spring through autumn. This wind is stronger in the spring months and originates from the temperature difference forming between the mounts overlooking the Alpago plateau to the north and the Veneto Po Valley to the south. This is why the lake is thronged with tourists from both Italy and foreign countries who love windsurfing, kitesurfing and sailing.
