The bell tower of Alt Graun and museum

The mostly pictured fotomotiv of Vinschgau

In the summer of 1950, the village of Graun, a part of Reschen as well as old hamlets were put under water for the construction of the reservoir.
The Romanesque tower was preserved for reasons of monument protection.
In the community museum in Graun, the history of seesting is illustrated vividly. There are also sacred objects and old farm items.

A legend says that during the winter you can still hear the church bells ringing, but in reality the bells were removed from the tower on July 18, 1950, a week before the demolition of the church nave and of the creation of the lake.
