Lake Bracciano keeps many mysteries. In ancient times it was called Sabatino. According to the legend, the sunken city is at the bottom of the volcanic lake. The lake is surrounded from almost all sides by small towns: Bracciano, Anguillara, Trevignano and Vigna di Valle. Each of them has its own history, but particularly noteworthy town is Bracciano with its symbol - the Castle Orsini- Odescalchi, proudly towering above the eponymous lake.
