Nature trail Bregaglia Engadin

Via Sett: Casaccia

Das Cunvent in Casaccia, das teilweise verschüttet wurde. Es diente Säumern und Handelsleuten als Unterkunft, Warenlager und Stall für die Tiere.

Description

At the foot of the Septimer and Maloja passes lies the small village of Casaccia. It was a strategic crossroads of two trade routes and lived from the transports and traders. While in other mountain villages agriculture was the main source of income, in Casaccia there are conspicuously few farms to be found. Instead, there used to be 40 farriers in the village, many saddlers and inns that could benefit from the traffic over the passes.  Even today you can admire the Cunvent from 1520, which served as a horse changing station and hostel. Even this old house was not spared when debris flows buried the village between 1573 and 1927. Therefore, the windows and doors are now well below street level.

Here in Casaccia the fourth stage of the interactive route ends! We were happy to accompany you during your hike with information about the Septimerweg. We wish you all the best on your way through the Bergell to Vicosoprano. We are always happy to receive feedback and suggestions on the interactive route - because only then can we improve (info@parc-ela.ch)!
