Funtana da Vi
Thanks to the high iron content in the mineral water, the Vi spring causes deposits to turn a bright orange.

Description

A tunnel about 30 metres long, which is not open to the public, leads to the spring. You can see a fountain from which water is constantly flowing. A pavilion once belonged to the Vi spring, the foundations of which can still be recognised at a beautiful vantage point just above the spring. The spring water is channelled through pipes to the Bogn Engiadina.
