Description

Until December 31, 2014, Stierva was an independent political municipality. On 1 January 2015, it merged with the municipalities of Alvaneu, Alvaschein, Brienz/Brinzauls, Mon, Surava and Tiefencastel to form the new municipality of Albula/Alvra. 

The village of Stierva is a cluster village high above the left side of the Albula on the eastern slopes of a mountain range whose highest mountains are the Curvér Pintg da Taspegn (2731 m) and the Muttner Horn (2401 m). The former municipal boundary forms the Albula in the valley below. In addition to the village, the former municipality also includes the hamlet of Bargung (1540 m) and various farmsteads. Of the entire former municipality of 1054 ha, 444 ha are covered by forest and wood and 71 ha of mountains. Of the 520 ha of land that can be used for agriculture, 428 ha are maize seeds. The remaining 19 ha of municipal area is settlement area.

The village of Stierva offers the recreation-seeking nature lover ideal conditions for a wide range of activities. The guest will find an almost complete range of services with school, post office, village shop and a cozy restaurant, the Belavista, which is known for its capuns.
