panorama: the old church tower in frozen lake resia

in 1949/1950, the creation of lake resia reservoir (de: Reschensee) resulted in the flooding/submersion of several villages. while most of the buildings were demolished, the old roman bell tower was left intact (for reasons of monument conservation), and is now the only reminder of the lost villages and forjudged residents.
lake resia is sometimes referred to as “atlantis of the alps”.
