This is a ’hanging valley’ due to a typical morphology produced by glacial erosion and also for the views that you can admire.
In the large plateau (altitude around 1,660 m), framed by a jagged range of mountains including Tagliaferro (2964 m asl) and the White Horn, (3320 m asl), are six small villages preserving beautiful examples of Walser architecture. A splendid little church of the XVI century, the richly frescoed façade, surrounded by the typical mountain chalets and dominated by the peaks is the first image upon arriving.
