Monuments and Museums in the Resia Pass Holiday Area

Churches, Monasteries and Museums near Resia Lake

The churches, monasteries and museums bear testimony to the historical importance of the region in which the Resia Pass holiday area is located. Particularly noteworthy is the half-submerged church steeple emerging out of the Resia Lake that has become a symbol of the Venosta Valley, recalling a dark period in the history of these lands. The Museum of Old Curon compellingly recounts the story of the construction of the Resia dam.

Those interested in historical matters should not miss the opportunity of a visit to the old military fortifications, consisting of a series of concrete bunkers and anti-tank barriers located at the Resia Pass border with Austria, which today appear more like a bizarre work of rock art. Naudersburg Castle is also worth visiting as are a number of sacred and profane locations located in the Resia Pass holiday area, some of which seem to emit a particular type of energy.
