The church steeple of old Curon is the most portrayed picture and the symbol of Venosta Valley. In 1950 the village of Curon had to give way for a construction of a reservoir. Until today the tower which rises from the lake remembers at it. In the Curon Municipal Museum visitors learn more about the history of Resia Lake and the villages of Curon and Resia.
