Via Sett: Historischer Verkehrsweg
Show all 7 images
Have you noticed what a beautiful road you are walking on? This paving has its origins in 1387, when the bishop of Chur commissioned 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 road. 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 compiled an inventory of the condition of all important historical traffic routes. Due to these efforts, the renovation of the Septimerweg was also tackled. In 2012, the road from Bivio over 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 historic traffic routes at the Federal Roads Office, and Marcello Crüzer, site manager of Bregaglia, will tell you how such historic paths are protected and renovated.
