Beautiful place. I suggest the guided tour where they are really nice and they explain everything.
Incredibile engineering work but a very sad story. Everyone should visit this place. The guide was excellent
Unfamous place, and the dam still stands practically untouched.
Memory of an environmental disaster. Located in the middle of Friulian Dolomite National Parks, stands the unused dam as the witness of probably one of the worst environmental disasters of Italy. Park your car and take a guided tour (cost @€10) of an hour and half to know about the disaster story. The tour includes a walk on the dam with commentary from experienced guides telling you about the story of 9 October 1963 that killed almost 2000 people, including about 500 children. The nature trail is beautiful. The tour is sad. It is a way to remember the importance of being environment sensitive in the modern day.
Beautiful and magical place. You cannot truly imagine what happend here until you see it with your own eyes. It is impressive that dam is sl remains intact after such dissaster.
