Eerily Beautiful Abandoned Places | Lake Reschen, Graun, Italy | Beginning in 1940, Italian electric company Montecatini built a dam to unify the area’s two lakes—Reschensee and Mittersee. As a byproduct of the dam, local villages were entirely submerged. In Graun, this 14th-century church bell tower is the only reminder that the village ever existed.
