The Lake of Molveno, formed by a landslide about 4000 years ago, is the second largest in Trentino-Alto Adige, 3.3 square kilometres (1.3 sq mi). It has a maximum depth of 123 metres (404 ft).
The area of Molveno is known to have been settled since the Neolithic age. Due to its strategic position at the entrance of the Brenta-Paganella plateau, it was contended between the Bishops of Trento, the counts of Tyrol and the counts of Flavon.
