Mavrobara is located very close to Villa Alexandra and it is a place of rare beauty and great ecological importance.
It is a freshwater lake covering a total area of 2,200 m2, located 300 metres above sea level.
The lake was created by geological landslides.
Its calm water gives shelter to two rare water turtle species, belonging to the families “Emydidae”, “emys orbicularis” and “Mauremys caspica”.
The number of individuals of each of these species has increased in recent years and this is very encouraging for their future.
