In the village stands the parish church of St. Calixtus with one of the most important carved winged altars in Graubünden. Outside are the castle ruins "Belfort" and the "Bündner Rütli" in the Außenwacht Vazerol.


The Catholic parish church of St. Calixtus was built in 1513-1519 on the remains of a Carolingian church first mentioned around 814. In the choir there is a masterfully carved late Gothic winged altar, which is considered the most important in Graubünden. Due to landslides, the church tower is leaning. The ruins of Belfort Castle are an imposing complex built in 1228-31 by the Lords of Vaz, divided into a lower and an upper castle. It was stormed and burned down in 1499 during the Swabian War. In 2002-07 the ruins were restored and can be visited. The villagescape of Alvaschein/Alvaschagn was awarded the title of "townscape of national importance".
