Pigniu Dam

Staudamm Pigniu
A dam wall that makes you think! A must for art and nature lovers!


In 1989 a 50 m high dam with a crest length of 250 m was built in the small mountain municipality Pigniu/Panix. This huge concrete canvas was turned into a painting by the Engadin artist Martin Valär and presents itself to the hiker from an entirely different perspective. See for yourself and learn more about the colourful dam wall in the small mountain municipality Pigniu. Besides that there is a beautiful place to barbecue and linger on the shore of the lake.
