Laguna Negra de Urbión is a haunted lake in Spain

Laguna Negra de Urbión (Black Lagoon Urbión) is a high mountain glacial lake at an elevation of 1.731m (5,679ft) above the sea level, located north of the province of Soria, in the autonomous community of Castile and León, in north-central Spain. The lagoon is said to be haunted.

The road to the lagoon, located within the Picos de Urbión mountain range, is asphalted but pretty narrow and steep. It's also known as Laguna Negra de Vinuesa. Starting from the SO-830 road, the ascent is 10.8 km long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 401m with an average gradient of 3.73%, but with sections up to 8%.

The road can be closed anytime due to snow and ice. The drive is definitely worth it. A drive not to be missed! The last 1.5km are closed to motor vehicles in holidays (you’ll need to park on a parking lot called Paso de la Serrá and walk the last 1500m). According to the legends, the Black lagoon is bottomless and communicates with the sea through caves and underground streams. They also say that there is a being that lives in its bottom and that devours everything that falls into it.
