Show all 7 images
The paths pass trough the villages of Borgonovo and Stampa, home of the famous Giacometti family and then continuing on to Soglio.
Today a cultural-historical hike awaits you. Borgonovo is the birthplace of the world-famous Alberto Giacometti. The Ciása Granda Valley Museum with the Sala Giacometti-Varlin is located in Stampa and in Coltura a visit to the Palazzo Castelmur is recommended. The paved path with a breath-taking view of the Sciora group and Pizzo Badile then leads up to Soglio.
Good hiking boots, especially from Coltura, are recommended.
The Via Bregaglia passes in front of "Casa Helvetia", enters the forest again and then reaches the old houses of Borgonovo. The path continues on the left side of the valley and runs alongside the main road for a while. This allows you to visit the church of San Giorgio, whose cemetery contains the tomb of the famous sculptor Alberto Giacometti and his no less famous relatives. Inside you can admire a famous stained glass window by Augusto Giacometti. Continuing along the road you reach Stampa where it is recommended to visit the Ciäsa Granda, the museum of Val Bregaglia. Right in front of the Atelier Giacometti, about 50 m before the museum, cross the "Punt Duan" and continue towards Coltura where you will find the second museum of the valley: the Palazzo Castelmur. Shortly after Palazzo Castelmur, you leave the village and, on the paved road, you pass not far from the church of San Pietro. The path goes until the houses of Caccior, where our hike continues along a steep mountain path towards Soglio.
