The history of Lake Geneva

Of glacial origin, Lake Geneva, the largest lake in Western Europe, was formed nearly 15,000 years ago following the retreat of the Rhone glacier. The name "Lake Leman" comes from the Latin "Lacus Lemanus". Also called Lake Geneva, it has been a communication route since ancient times. It facilitated the transport of goods in Roman times to the ports of Nyon, Lausanne, Thonon and Geneva. Today, the main purpose of Lake Geneva is to provide drinking water to several thousand people thanks to a dozen pumping stations.
