Although located close to the main square it fits nicely into the ambient, just below the huge hill above Riva DG. Looks impressive, would be nice to visit it inside and have a short informative tour .

Standing by the side of the lake we initially thought that this building was another Hotel. It blends into the area so well and you would not expect to be told that it is the Hydroelectric power plant
