Besides the famous Resia Pass, the territory of Alta Val Venosta comprises also other small villages. There is for example Curon, with its Romanesque bell tower surfacing from the Resia Lake. East of Curon stretches the Vallelunga valley, with the imposing Pala Bianca glacier, a favorite destination for ice climbers, and the Devil’s Hole, a rock resembling a human figure.
Beautiful and easy snowshoeing tour through the Alta Val Venosta valley: from the farms Masi di Montechiaro to Mount Glorenza. The route is for the large part uphill, and in the background you can admire imposing mountain peaks, like those of the Ortles Massif.
Lake Resia has become the symbol of Alta Val Venosta thanks to the legendary bell tower emerging from its waters, bell tower that in winter, when the surface of the lake freezes, can be reached on foot.
Lake Resia is an artificial expanse of water situated in the Val Venosta valley, at an altitude of 1498 meters. Its most distinguishing feature is the Bell tower rising from its water, and the many legends around it.
