    Web search shows it is in Italy. Now, does it still run, and does it use water power to operate? (couldn't resist asking)

    From a Flickr photo caption:

    "The 14th century campanile of Graun village church, in the province of Bolzano-Bozen on the Italian/Austrian border, emerging from beneath the waters of Lake Resia. This 6.6 square kilometre artificial reservoir was created between April 1940 and July 1950, the minor delay in completing it caused by the major rumpus that was the Second World War. During the winter, the lake often freezes over, making the campanile reachable by foot, while on stormy nights, so legend has it, the old bells are still said to ring out from inside their aquatic stronghold..."

    I couldn't find a picture of the town before it was flooded.

    Nice. You think it would be alright if I set that as background for my desktop?
    Being a landscaper, thats beautiful. It combines the best of both worlds.
