The lake “Specchio di Venere” (Mirror of Venus), also called Bagno dell’Acqua , can be admired in all its beauty climbing the road that leads to Bugeber. Bugeberg is a beautiful village surrounded by green terraced hills, all cultivated with the low characteristic vineyards of the island.
The bougainvillea’s intense spots of colours are wonderful and range from blue to purple , from yellow to purple-red .
The lake water takes different colours during the day and varies according to the water depth. Going downwards from Bugeber this phenomenon can be fully enjoyed because the reflections change in every bend as well as colours which range from blue to light blue, from turquoise to yellow.
The lake water is rich in minerals and there are several sulfur springs with high temperatures (even over 40 degrees). So the mud , very rich in mineral substances, is used for therapeutic purposes. I show the spa area and the therapeutic use of mud. Foreign ladies did not miss the opportunity to take the best of the mud’s cosmetic properties . It was funny to see them becoming , from completely black, all grey , as soon as the mud dried on their skin.
