  • We have an afternoon by the Verzasca Valley. A beautiful construction work, this dam, and also the Roman bridge, just down the road at Lavertezzo is quite nice. Fine to during a hot afternoon, just cooling off in the mountains, where you also get some learns about power.

  • The Verzasca Dam is definitely worth seeing. Depending on the weather (weather) can leave a different impression/emotion, from sadness to joy and freedom. Leave some imprint, and is a compulsory stop for those visiting the Verzasca Valley.

  • If you ever wondered where James Bond, Base jumped off the dam, this is the one. World famous!!! Very impressive, scenery and the site are very picturesque, and a great drive up to the spot. There is a little kiosk there, and a lot of people.
  • James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) jumped from the top of this Dam in Golden Eye. One the most famous base jumping places in Europe.
  • If you want to get the 007 view and feel... just down the 220 meters! This is a thrilling, impressive and world famous sight and a must for all James Bond 007 fans! Best to access by car. Public transport is available but I recommend by car. For all those who believe to know how high 220m are, go and find out by standing on top of the dam. For all those who are afraid of height, no worries. You can accompany you family and friends. The journey to the dam itself is an adventure and provides plenty of opportunities to click photos... Enjoy!
  • Amazing place, nice that you can take 321 bus there
  • Amazing structure (1m lower than Hoover Dam) with great views. Inspired by James Bond movies many people are doing jumps of the dam. There are beautiful winding rows leading to the dam and going further there is a picturesque bridge.
