Curon Venosta

Overview

Bordering both Switzerland and Austria, the territory of Curon Venosta represents the last section of the Venosta valley. Here, the Adige River, just a few metres from its source, fills the Resia Lake, an artificial basin that is a paradise for lake sports, surrounded by a marvellous high mountain landscape.

In order to exploit the waters of the Adige in the 1950s, a dam was created at Curon Venosta: a dam that created the body of water that is now Lake Resia, but all that remained on the valley floor remained submerged. Only the bell tower of an ancient church was able to surpass the depth of the basin in height. And the bell tower rising from the water today represents not only a historical symbol of the recent past but also an extraordinary tourist postcard for South Tyrol.
