Near the start of the Cinque Torri chair lift lies Lake Bài de Dònes, which is surrounded by ancient legends.
It is said that the lake was inhabited by the mysterious and much feared Anguànes, creatures with goats’ hooves who were servants of the god Sylvanus.When the Anguànes washed their master’s laundry, they would come out into the open and could easily be seen.
Should some imprudent person have the misfortune to observe them at that critical moment, their fury at the presence of a stranger would unleash a fearsome storm.
Perhaps it is precisely out of this legend that the saying arose that when a woman who is regarded as being wicked does her washing, the weather will change for the worse.
The lake rests on a layer of impermeable clay which stops the water from dispersing.
On its shores you can admire a particular form of amphibious vegetation and fauna.
