Saint Anna, the Lake’s Deceiver

The locals in this area, specifically those who live on the coast, don’t go swimming in the lakes on July 26 – Saint Anna’s Day – because every year on the exact same day for centuries many people have drowned.

A popular saying among the locals goes like this: “Par sant'Ana l'àcua dal laag l'ingàna,” that is: for Saint Anna, the lake water plays tricks.
