Die drei Apsiden in der Kirche St. Peter in Mistail

Our tips for the following stage of Via Sett:

  • The Parc Ela, the largest natural park in Switzerland, which combines the three language cultures of Romance, German and Italian. With steep mountain peaks and wide landscapes, surrounded by glaciers and mountain lakes, the park still offers a real sense of wilderness. 
  • Visit the Church of St. Peter Mistail in Alvaschein. The former monastery church was built around 800 in the time of Charles the Great. Characteristic of the Carolingian church are the unstructured, flat-roofed church hall and the three apses, which are preserved in Mistail original.

Description

In Lantsch/Lenz is the entrance gate to Parc Ela, the largest nature park in Switzerland. Passing the Maiensäss huts of Tschividains, we go to the chapel of Son Cassian. The house «La Tor», medieval customs station, still reminds us of the importance of Lantsch/Lenz as a port station on Septimerweg. Prehistoric finds at the hill «Bot da Loz» and the church of St. Maria with the wrought-iron grave crosses are further cultural highlights, including the Carolingian church of St. Peter Mistail (Alvaschein). At the confluence of the Julia and Albula, the Via Sett leads over the former customs bridge to Tiefencastel.
