  • Very interesting place which showed how the mountain people lived in the not so distant past. The custodian, a very old lady who speaks no English , still manages to convey her love of the place to those with no Italian. I had never seen a marmot trap before ; not sure I want to see one again, but that was part of the life . The surrounding scenery of the Monte Rosa range is absolutely stunning. I could live there quite happily, after I improve my Italian. Makes for great photography. My camera shots are a lot better but these phone shots will.give some idea.
  • Epic mountain scenery. Nice place for refreshments. Take the cable car to get the best views.
