A balcony onto the Argentera ridge

Fremamorta lakes

From the Fremamorta lakes, the Argentera ridge in all its majesty (R. Malacrida)

Five small lakes, each one prettier than the last, lying in a row in a raised basin on the edge of the Valletta valley above Terme di Valdieri, not far from Pian della Casa (accessible by car). The easy excursion to this sunny place contrasts with the sad legend around the formation of the lakes.

The story goes that these lakes were formed by a river of tears shed by a man who had lost his beloved wife. In fact the word "fremo" in Franco-Provençale means "woman".
