Endine lake

You can get there easily from Lovere and from Riva di Solto. It is located in one of the most charming valleys of Bergamo: the Valle Cavallina. The lake Endine is exactly in the middle of the valley, giving it a special touch. The surface of the lake is a little more modest than that of the Lake Iseo: only 2,34 square km. Mostly the waters coming from Monte Boario feed it. One can find the following species of fish: among others: pikes, the perch, the carp, the tench, etc. The places to visit are Monasterolo, Endine, Spinone al lago, San Felice al lago and Ranzanico. Monasterolo is probably the most frequented spot on the lake, especially in summer. Interesting in fact is, its medieval centre that stretches out to the lakeside. Also worth a visit is the medieval castle with its spectacular colourful garden. Inside the castle in 1600 was built a small church, which was dedicated to Saint Anna.The Spinone al Lago is very well located: the ancient nucleus is built a little higher than the lake surface and has a fine Roman architecture, for example the church S.Pietro in Vincoli, probably one of the most ancient religious buildings of the valley. The castle that once stood in Spinone was demolished in the XV century. Everywhere the visitor is treated to the most splendid panoramas on the lake. The village Ranzanico is built at 520 metres above the lake level. Its ancient centre shows that this once was a fortification (the tower on the market square).
