Via Sett: Casaccia

Das Cunvent in Casaccia, das teilweise verschüttet wurde. Es diente Säumern und Handelsleuten als Unterkunft, Warenlager und Stall für die Tiere.

Description

At the foot of the Septimer and Maloja passes is the small village of Casaccia. It was a strategic crossroads of two trade routes and lived from the transports and traders. While in other mountain villages agriculture was the main source of income, Casaccia has a strikingly few farms. Instead, there used to be 40 hoofsmiths in the village, many saddlers and inns that could benefit from traffic via the passes.  Even today you can admire the Cunvent from 1520, which served as a horse exchange station and hostel. This old house was not spared either, when murmurs buried the village between 1573 and 1927. As a result, the windows and doors are now well below the street level.

Here in Casaccia, the fourth stage of the interactive route ends! We were pleased to accompany you during your hike with information about the Septimerweg. We wish you all the best on the way through the Bergell to Vicosoprano. We are always happy to receive feedback and suggestions about the interactive route - because only in this way can we improve (info@parc-ela.ch)!
