The Natural Monument represented by the “Acquafraggia” falls is an open invitation for you to enjoy a fascinating exhibition of nature itself within this still-wild corner in the heart of Italian Bregaglia
The waterfalls known as Acquafraggia, situated in Piuro, Valchiavenna have, as their source, the ‘pizzo Lago’ or ‘Lake at the Peak’ located at a height of 3050 metres, forming the watershed between the North Sea and the Mediterranean. A torrent bearing the same name issues from the lake. ‘Pizzo Lago’ was created within a broad hanging basin formed by an ancient glacial circle and the torrent descends 1800 metres over five kilometres incorporating a number of cliffs and therefore ‘falls’. It is from this that the latin-based name has its origin (aqua fracta, hence acqua “spezzata” or water “split” by waterfalls). The final long ‘drop’ creates the double waterfall, much-admired from the valley below, adjacent to the community of Borgonuovo di Piuro, where the torrent feeds into the River Mera.
