Welcome to Val Bregaglia
This wildly beautiful valley tumbles down to the southeast and into Italy from the Maloja Pass at the head of the Engadine Valley. It is dominated by horn-shaped granite peaks, chestnut forests and stone villages crowned by Italianate churches. The closer to Italy, the more the Italian influence. By road, Val Bregaglia is 22km long, from Maloja to the border.
Italian-speaking Val Bregaglia is also known as the valley of artists. Alberto Giacometti was born here, and both Giovanni Segantini and Varlin were inspired by the valley.
