Poschiavo is located at about 1000 meters above sea level. But thanks to its south-facing location and the relatively mild climate, there are favourable conditions for the cultivation of fruit and vegetables – quite different from the neighbouring Engadine, which was supplied with fresh produce from Valposchiavo across the Bernina Pass until the Second World War.
For this purpose, slopes were terraced in the valley to gain vegetable cultivation areas. The former gardens have disappeared, in some places the forest has reconquered the terrain, but the original, stepped terrain is still clearly visible in some places.
Such relics by Runchett Sotsassa are particularly visible. The viewpoint is only a little more than a hundred meters higher than the valley floor, but offers a great view of the town and the surrounding mountains. In two relatively flat places, wooden benches invite you to linger and enjoy the view.
