"Church Tower Amidst a Lake"

Tucked away in South Tyrol, Lago di Resia, or Lake Reschen, is more than a serene lake, for it flows over multiple towns and is marked by the peeking steeple of a submerged 14th-Century church. In the 1940s, an Italian electric company unified two lakes, Reschensee and Mittersee, to build a dam. In the process, several towns were intentionally flooded to make way for the dam. Today, the sole reminder of the drowned cities is the steeple of a historic church that juts out of Lake Reschen. Visitors can take in panoramic views of the sapphire waters with the help of a viewing platform nearby.
