"Remarkable Monastery - UNDER CONSTRUCTION" Müstair by lotharlerch

Müstair Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 49 photos

A treasure of art close to the Swiss National Park

Where is this Müstair situated? The Swiss National Park is north of the pass Il Fuorn which connects the Engadin and the Val Müstair. The Val Müstair goes from the pass Il Fuorn down southeast to the Vinschgau (val Venostga) in South Tirol. Immediately before the Val Müstair leaves Switzerland to become "Münstertal" the village Müstair is immediately at the Swiss/Italian frontier. Only a few steps from the frontier is the monastery. The church with the famous Carolingian frescoes (an UNESCO world heritage) is under daytime accessible free of charge and normally you will meet only a few people visiting it for the frescoes.
