Description

The Parc Ela is rich in nature and culture. These include steep mountain peaks, vast landscapes with flower meadows and mountain forests, surrounded by glaciers and mountain lakes. But also historic villages and baroque churches, which recall the former importance of the trade routes over the Alpine passes Albula, Julier and Septimer.

The name Parc Ela derives from the pits Ela mountain, which is located in the centre of the park between the Albula Valley and the Surses. Ela means "wing" in Romanesque.
