The remains of the “lost” village of Curon emerge from Lake Resia.
The village, which was once home to hundreds of people, was flooded in 1950 for a hydroelectric power station, with the 14th century church tower the only thing remaining, which stands high on Lake Resia.
The eerie image of the tower, which has become a tourist attraction, inspired a Netflix book and show, a supernatural drama called Curon.
With part of the lake being drained for work, social media users posted photos of what appear to be old walls, steps and caves in the old village, which is in South Tyrol, the Alpine region that borders Austria and Switzerland.
Luisa Azzolini shared her photos of the village on Twitter.
“Curon like he had never been seen before!” she said.
“For maintenance reasons, Lake Resia has half dried up and the remains of the ancient village of Curon have resurfaced!
“A strange feeling when walking on the rubble of houses.”
