Tower in Lake Reschen

Near the Reschen Pass, where the Etsch has its origins, stands a solitary church tower out of the water which is the symbol of the Venosta Valley.
When the dam was built, the village fell victim to the floods: For electricity, the residents had to move and in the summer of 1950, the houses were blown up and then flooded. Only the Romanesque tower from the 14th Century was left standing as a historic building preservation.

Befestigungsanlagen am Reschenpass

Nach dem „Anschluss“ Österreichs an das Deutsche Reich am 13. März 1938 grenzt dieses an Italien.

Im Zuge der Aktion Alpenwall - Vallo Alpino del Littorio werden auf italienischer Seite Grenzbefestigungen sowohl in der Talsohle als auch auf dem Hochplateau Plamort errichtet. Bunker, Kasernen, Panzersperren usw. sollen der Grenzsicherung und der Verteidigung dienen. Heute hat man den Bunker 20 nahe des Dorfes Reschen als erhaltenswert eingestuft, nicht zuletzt auch durch die sich dort befindende Etschquelle.
