Village tour of La Punt Chamues-ch

The patricians of yesteryear built their palaces here for good reason.

At the heart of both parts of this historic village are some fine buildings: richly decorated farmhouses in Chamues-ch, and grand patrician houses in La Punt. The patricians who built their magnificent houses here in the 16th and 17th centuries knew what they were doing: La Punt Chamues-ch occupies a strategic location at the foot of the Albula Pass road, once an important trade route.

The Chesa Merleda with its dazzling white crenellated walls is the emblem of La Punt, and one of the most important historic structures in canton Graubünden. Other buildings, too, are well worth a visit – such as the late-Gothic church of San Andrea, built on Romanesque foundations dating from the Middle Ages, and decorated with modern stained-glass windows.

On a village tour, you will also discover the history of Adam da Chamues-ch, regarded as the liberator of the Upper Engadin.
