Specchio di Venere Pantelleria
Latest update: 9 February 2024
The Specchio di Venere is the most magnificent and iconic sight on the remote island of Pantelleria in Sicily. Translating into English as the Mirror of Venus, it's a shallow lake with natural hot springs where the water temperature varies from 40° to 50° Celsius.
It's possible to explore the hills around the lake either on foot or by car and this is also an important spot for ornithology.
