San Lorenzo Nuovo

The small town San Lorenzo Nuevo has 2245 inhabitants. It was founded in the mid- 18th Century and so it is the youngest town around the Lake Bolsena. In the early 18th Century one third of the population of San Lorenzo Nuovo, which was located right on the lake, died because of an malaria epidemic. That is why they decided to relocate in order to escape the epidemic. The new location was four kilometre away and three hundred meter higher. The steady north wind promised a healthier climate. It just took four years to construct the new town - San Lorenzo Nuovo (1774-1778) - Back then, quite rapid!

Because of its young age, there are no picturesque, medieval buildings and sights like in other towns around Lake Bolsena in San Lorenzo Nuovo. Nevertheless, this place has a charming Italian atmosphere and you can find some very nice restaurants here.
