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.


The 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 landscapes with carefully developed townscapes and an intact forest and natural landscape with great biodiversity. One of the attractions of the valley are the earth pyramids below The San Peder, which were formed over the course of millennia from moraine material. If you want to explore this natural monument and the Val Sinestra, you have to set off on foot, by bike or snowshoes. But the effort is rewarded with impressive landscapes, such as on Via Engiadina, which runs through the Val Sinestra.

A real highlight is also the Youthstilhaus Val Sinestra. It was built in 1912 as a spa house. Today it houses a hotel and a restaurant, but you can still feel a touch of bygone times.
