Show all 7 images
Our tips for the following stage of the Via Sett:
- Parc Ela, the largest nature park in Switzerland, which combines the three language cultures of Romansh, German and Italian. With steep mountain peaks and vast landscapes surrounded by glaciers and mountain lakes, the park still offers a real wilderness feeling.
- Visit the church of St. Peter Mistail in Alvaschein. The former monastery church was built around 800 in the time of Charlemagne. Characteristic of the Carolingian church are the unstructured, flat-roofed church hall and the three apses, which are originally preserved in mistail.
Lantsch/Lenz is the gateway to Parc Ela, Switzerland's largest nature park. Passing the mountain 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 near 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 Julia and Albula, the Via Sett leads over the former customs bridge to Tiefencastel.
