"Soglio and the Bregaglia valley" Soglio by german_eagle

Soglio Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 62 photos

Soglio is a small village in the Bregaglia valley in the Swiss canton Graubünden/Grisons. The setting is spectacular: It nestles on a sunny terrace at an elevation of 1,100 m, facing the granite mountains vis-a-vis that reach more than 3,300 m.

Since I could not find the Bregaglia valley as a destination itself in the VT database I decided to pick the best known village - Soglio - and put all the tips on the valley on its page. Thus you find tips on Bondo, Vicosoprano etc. here as well.

The Bregaglia valley is the only protestant Italian speaking region in Switzerland. The architecture is very Italian as well, but with some influence from the neighbouring Engadine - massive stone houses, huge logs, granite roofs, sgraffito decorations. Soglio aside the valley is non-touristy, totally off the beaten path. However, the scenery is spectacular, hiking opportunities are vast and there are quite some discoveries to make in regards to architecture and art.

    What a beautiful area! I never knew there was any such thing as a Protestant Italian speaking region in Switzerland. And I had no idea that there was such a large chestnut forest down there.

    Ingo, oustanding updates since my last visit of your Soglio page. Although I have now visited your page twice this month, I still haven't been to the area once. *winkygrin*
