Scuba divers also enjoy exploring the lake due to crystal clearness of the water.

In the deepest section of the lake, at a depth of 15 meters, stands a large crucifix constructed of steel and platinum. The cross was placed there in order to protect the lake and all those who visit it.


On the first weekend in August a festival, named the Festa del Crocifisso e del Subacqueo, is held at the lake. Here divers gather and swim down to the bottom of the lake to retrieve the crucifix and bring it to the surface. The cross is then lifted onto a boat and transported around the lake followed by a torch-lit procession of smaller boats, canoes and pedal boats. After Mass on the following day another set of divers return the cross to its underwater resting place for another year.
