Ponte Runchett da Sotsassa
The covered wooden bridge (approx. 4,200 kg) extends over a ravine and fits well into the steep slopes above the village.

Description

It could one day become the landmark of Poschiavo, as it sits enthroned up there. The wooden structure is part of a path that opens up the typical terraced fields, the so-called "Runchett", on which vegetables and fruits were grown for the hotels in the Engadine until the 2nd World War. 

The stone terraces above Poschiavo have been difficult to access and have been neglected in recent decades: they were correspondingly overgrown and overgrown when the municipality began the restoration. They were repaired and the dry stone walls were renovated.

A relatively steep descent leads back to the Borgo, which you have just admired from a bird's eye view.
