Description

For a thousand years, the Capletta Sogn Benedetg defied storm and weather above Sumvitg until it was completely destroyed by a huge dust avalanche on February 10, 1984. As a result, the well-known architect Peter Zumthor was commissioned to build a new chapel in a safe location. It was inaugurated in 1989. Since then, the ruins of the old chapel have also been restored.
