14th-Century Italian village resurfaces from lake for the first time in over 70 years

May 21, 2021

The submerged Italian village of Curon is resurfacing for the first time in over 70 years. Located in the northern part of the country near Switzerland, the village, dating back to the 14th Century, was once home to hundreds of people. However, in 1950 construction began on a large dam in order to produce hydroelectric energy and to unite two nearby lakes, Lake Resia and Lake Curon. In order to complete the project the town was flooded, with the only remnants being a centuries-old bell tower that has partially remained visible above the water. Through this striking visual, the lake gained popularity and even inspired a book and Netflix series. Now, for the first time in decades, the old town is fully visible. The lake, which lies in South Tyrol, the Alpine region that borders Austria and Switzerland, was temporarily drained to allow for repairs, revealing the remnants of the former village. According to the BBC , locals have been exploring the site, sharing photos and videos of weathered steps, cellars, and walls.

Hikers come during the warmer months, and in the winter, tourists can walk across the frozen lake to reach the spire. Today, the modern-day Curon, which was formed after the original’s destruction, has approximately 2,500 inhabitants and is situated above its predecessor.
