Curon Venosta

In the north west section of the province of Bolzano, in the Alta Val venosta valley, rises the municipality of Curon Venosta, bordering with Malles Venosta, Austria, Switzerland and the Resia Pass. Besides the distinctive bell tower of the Resia lake, Curon Venosta features several cycling tracks, like the Via Claudia Augusta, and hiking trails. In winter, skiing is the most popular sport here, and the area offers three ski centers: Belpiano, Malga S. Valentino and Maseben. Other sports you can practice are snow kiting and ice surfing on the Resia lake.

Curon

This village is known for the Romanesque bell tower surfacing from the Resia Lake, memory of the village of Curon Vecchia, submerged after the building of the dam in 1950. On the lake shores lies now Curon Nuova.

Resia

The village of Resia lies at the foot of the pass of the same name and is surrounded by wonderful landscapes facing, on the right, the glaciers of the Austrian border, and on the left the peaks often reaching an altitude of 3000 m between Italy and Switzerland. Most part of Resia Vecchia was submerged by the artificial lake too. Southwest lies Roja, at an altitude of 2000 m, with a church featuring Gothic frescoes going back to the XV century.

S. Valentino alla Muta

This small village lies on the shores of the S. Valentino Lake, also called the chartreuse lake, because once it was property of the monastery of S. Valentino. From here you can admire the imposing Ortles Massif, that, with its 3905 m, is the highest mountain group of Tyrol.

Vallelunga

Vallelunga valley stretches eastward from Curon to the imposing Palla Bianca glacier, perfect for ice climbing, and is characterized by many small masi and hamlets. Worth a visit is the so called Krampusloch or Devil's Hole: a rock resembling a human figure and taking on a particular shade thanks to the plants and algae growing on it. Near the valley you find the head of the Adige River and the path taking to the Palla Bianca refuge at an altitude of 2544 m.
