Sanabria Lake

Sanabria Lake is a lake of glacier origin located in the north-west of the province of Zamora (Spain)

With a surface of 368 hectares it is the largest lake of glacier origin in the whole Iberian Peninsula. Its main inflow and outflow of water is the River Tera.

The Sanabria lake is now surrounded by Sanabria Lake Natural Park, which was declared ‘Natural Park’ in 1978.

The Sanabria region along with Sierra de la Culebra mountains are famous too for its large population of Iberian wolves. In fact, the existance of wolves is so remarkable in the region that a Center of Interpretation was built in 2018, where a number of wolves can be observed in a semi-freedom environment. It is called Centro del Lobo Ibérico Félix Rodríguez de la Fuente.
