Blick ins Val Sinestra über Zuort
Famous for its natural and cultural landscape, the unique suspension bridges and the mysterious Art Nouveau house Val Sinestra.


Val Sinestra was voted Landscape of the Year 2011. Criteria are the identification of different aspects of the landscape, their protection and ongoing commitment of the local people. The valley shows a harmonious interlocking of natural and cultural landscape with carefully developed townscapes and an intact forest and natural landscape with great biodiversity. A sight of the valley are the earth pyramids below Prà San Peder, which formed over thousands of years from moraine material. If you want to explore this natural monument and the Val Sinestra, you have to go on foot, by bike or snowshoes. But the effort is rewarded with impressive landscapes, such as on the Via Engiadina, which leads through the Val Sinestra.

A real highlight is also the Art Nouveau house Val Sinestra. This was built in 1912 as a spa house. Nowadays it houses a hotel and a restaurant – but a touch of bygone times can still be felt today.
