Soglio
Arriving in Soglio feels like a dream. Is it the old palazzi, houses and stables from many different centuries? Or the view of Val Bondasca, with its pointed, impressive peaks above 3000 meters, most of which are covered in snow?

Description

The old mountain village of Soglio has many faces. At its heart are the mansions of the de Salis family. The oldest dates back to the 14th century and today houses the B&B Pension Piazza. The "younger" ones still date from the 17th/18th century, including Casa Mezzo (1696) and Casa Battista (1701), which has been an inn since 1876 and still serves guests under the name Palazzo Salis. Many other houses and stables huddle together in Soglio like a bird's nest.

At the same time Soglio is spoiled by the sun, creating an unusual flora, which needs to be well protected from fresh breezes by old walls. Below, the chestnut groves begin - a cultivated plant that was brought to Val Bregaglia by the Romans and cultivated there. Soglio is climatically on a threshold (and perhaps also on the "threshold to paradise", as the painter Giovanni Segantini once said).

The arrival in Soglio on foot is particularly beautiful: here ends the Sentiero Panoramico, which leads on southern slopes from the alpine Casaccia down to Soglio.
