Postcard from Italy – Lake Varese


Today we cycled around Varese Lake not far from Lake Maggiore in northern Italy and came across these ice-houses built in the late 1700s and used to store ice from the lake in winter. They were then used in summer to keep fish.

Aujourd’hui nous avons fait le tour du lac de Varese qui se trouve non loin du lac Maggiore. Nous sommes tombés sur ces glacières construites à la fin des années 1700. Elles servaient au stockage de la glace pendant l’hiver. Ensuite on y conservait le poisson.
