All the information you need
The natural and cultural landscape ranges in just 25 km as the crow flies from the ice giants of the Bernina chain, to the glacier mills in Cavaglia, to the chestnut trees in Brusio, down to the vines of Valtellina. Woven into it is a multitude of lakes, side valleys and pretty villages with interesting cultural monuments, churches and palaces. Hamlets and Maiensäss complete the variety of settlements. The Swiss and the Italian mentality and food culture meet harmoniously here.
The main town is the town of Poschiavo, whose patrician houses frame an Italian-style piazza. An architectural highlight is the "Spanish quarter" with colorful houses.
The flora and fauna is rich in species, from alpine to sub-Mediterranean. From larch and pine to chestnut and grapevine, from eagle and ibex to deer and roe deer.
The nature includes breathtaking alpine views, rivers like the Poschiavino, as well as a multitude of lakes like the Lago di Poschiavo, the famous Lago di Saoseo and the Lago Bianco.
The Bernina Railway winds its way along the flanks of the valley, through many tunnels and bridges and, including the landscape, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The convertible carriages of the Bernina Railway are also an unforgettable experience.
