Description

A small hill below the village of Degen, bears the name Turatscha (mighty tower) and shows traces of a disappeared castle complex. It is the ancestral castle of the episcopal ministerials of Blumenthal, who controlled and secured the paths. The Säumerweg from the southern Valserberg led over the Glenner bridges below Uors/Surcasti to Degen and from there over the pass Sogn Carli or through the dam of Porclas.
