You will almost have to look twice on holiday at Reschensee lake as you view the lonely church tower protruding from the water or ice for the first time. It appears so illusory and fascinating like something from a film. Today, the tower in the lake is the most photographed subject in the Vinschgau valley and the landmark of the municipality of Graun/Curon.
It was built in the late 1300s as an independent structure to the left of the former church. Legend has it that, even today, its bells ring out on harsh winter nights. Around the tower, an area bordering three countries , the Reschenpass/Passo Resia holiday region includes the villages of Reschen/Resia, Graun/Curon, and St. Valentin/San Valentino, connected together by the antique Roman trading route, the Via Claudia Augusta. Holidays at the Reschensee lake are ideal for water and wind-based activities, be it sailing in summer or snowkiting in winter. Little developed and quiet, the side valleys of Langtaufers and Rojen are perfect for relaxing excursions in nature.
