The Lake Como is a lake of glacial origin in Lombardy, Italy. With its 416 meters of depth (near Argegno) it is one of the deepest lakes in Europe. It has an area of 146 km˛, making it the third largest lake in Italy, after Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore. It has a characteristic shape to "turned upside down Y", with two 'legs' starting at Como in the South-West and Lecco in the South-East, which join together half way up and the lake continues up to Colico in the North.
