Barberine dam

People are often unaware of the existence of the old Barberine dam, built in 1925, because when the Emosson lake is full, it lies beneath 42 metres of water!

However, it can sometimes be seen if you go to Emosson in the spring (the access road is usually open from mid-May) when the water level is still low. From then on, the lake gradually fills, reaching its maximum annual capacity towards the end of September.
