The territory


Valposchiavo is an ensemble of natural wonders and architectural beauties to discover: Poschiavo is the most shining pearl, but all the views are worth seeing; best if on board the Bernina Red train.

The Three Towers of Poschiavo


While you are wandering through the tiny streets of Poschiavo, you will be immediately dazzled by the three towers that dominate the village. From the top of its 10 meters height, the Municipal Tower, which encloses the perimeter of City Hall, flies the flags with the coats of arms of the city and Valposchiavo.


The bell tower of the Roman Catholic Church of San Vittore is of Romanesque age, featuring the clocks clearly visible in the centre and a dark stone pyramidal cusp on the summit.


The bell tower of the Reformed Church of the Holy Trinity, dating back to the second half of the 17th century, is of particular artistic beauty.
