Via Sett: Historischer Verkehrsweg


Have you noticed what a beautiful street you are walking on? This paving has its origins in 1387, when the Bischhof of Chur commissioned the Bergeller Jakob von Castelmur to expand the road for carriages. Due to the intensive use of the path and the repeatedly neglected repair, the road was renovated several times. Today there is probably no stone left of the original Castel street. The route and the type of paving are still original.

Historic traffic routes are endangered by the expansion of roads and forest paths, which is why the federal government is trying to protect them. He has drawn up an inventory of the condition of all major historical transport routes. Due to these efforts, the renovation of the Septimerweg was also tackled. In 2012, the road from Bivio via the Septimer to Casaccia was renovated. The work lasted throughout the summer and cost around 110,000.-

At the audio symbol, Hans Peter Kistler, responsible for historical traffic routes at the Federal Roads Office, and Marcello Crüzer, construction manager of the Bergell, tell you how such historic paths are protected and renovated.
