Heavy rains in the morning. Through many tunnels we reach Italy via the Rheintal-Autobahn. On the edge of Lake Reschen we stay overnight. This is our view in the morning:
The half sunk steeple is the only thing left of the old village of Graun when in 1961 the valley turned into a water reservoir. Today the steeple is often photographed tourist attraction.
A view kilometers off we visit Italy’s smallest town (800 inhabitants). The miniature city Glurns is surrounded by a totally conserved townwall and three strong watchtowers. The latter are too narrow and too low for us – we have to do a detour around. Due to frequent floods in earlier centuries the ground has risen more and more so the doors and entrances are very low nowadays.
