WHY DO THEY CALL IT “RED LAKE”?
THE TOVEL LAKE LEGEND
Up to the ‘60s, the Tovel Lake name was connected to the characteristic reddening of its water as well as to its wonderful romantic atmosphere. Every year in summer, the shores of the lake used to turn bright red. It was an extremly unique and suggestive sight. Not surprisingly, over the years, many tales and legends came up about the origins of the phenomenon. The most famous of them all is the legend of the Queen Tresenga.
