Description

The Greina is one of the most beautiful and largest plateaus in Switzerland and is one of the few still natural contiguous areas of Switzerland. Their biotope diversity is exceptional and unique. For this reason, the Greina Plain has been included as a protection zone in the Federal Inventory of Landscapes and Natural Monuments of National Importance in Switzerland.

The Greina plateau is about six kilometers long and one kilometer wide and is located at 2200 m.M. The Greina Pass connects Graubünden in the east and Ticino in the west. The three valleys Val Lumnezia, Val Sumvitg (Graubünden) and Valle di Blenio (Ticino) are only connected via the Greina plain.

Places of Magic:
The Greina Plateau is a fascinating and unique, Swiss-wide, primeval landscape. It is wild and untouched, gentle and eerie at the same time. The landscape is wide, infinitely the distance and yet the mountains seem so close.

At The Muot la Greina, a stone-rich room filled with pools and moors opens up. The plain shows the remains of several walls of past cultures. It is a powerful, magical place that has probably been used cultically.
