Julier Pass: and most ancient crossing
The Julier Pass connects Engadine with the rest of the canton Graubünden. And ancient ruins bear witness to the great age and significance of this alpine crossing. Today is no different either, and the top of the spectacular mountain pass reveals views of its course along Europe’s Rhein and Donau watershed.
Hotel Restaurant Ospizio La Veduta
The village of Savognin stretches out on both sides of the Julia river and is connected by a romantic medieval bridge. Three imposing churches complete the picture.
The Lai da Marmorera is a dam in Canton Graubünden. The old Marmorera village had to give way to the dam and was rebuilt above the Julier pass road.
