On the municipal road that connects the village of Sillano to the Orecchiella Park, immediately after the tunnel, the passage over the Vicaglia dam offers a truly special glance. Downstream a jump of 53 meters is interrupted at the base of the canyon below, upstream the waters of the Corte River form a crystal clear lake with rather steep banks, surrounded by well-tended chestnut woods. The lake feeds the hydroelectric power station “Sillano I”, the highest in the Garfagnana and is a true paradise for fishing lovers. Its waters are classified as salmonids and in fact the brown trout that are caught here remain legendary in the tales of fishermen.
