It's located at 1.250 metres above the sea and it's a nice town with many nice decorated stone and wooden houses.

Ladin is a Romanic language (and culture) that's alive nowadays mainly in Switzerland and in some italian valleys.
Ladin is the main language in Scuol area, so that most of the plates and shop signs are writte in Ladin; you'll find "Cuafför" for Coiffeur and "Restorant" for "Restaurant", "Bogn" for bath and so on
The town is divided into two main parts, Scuol Sura (Upper Scuol) and Scuol Sot (Lower Scuol) and many other small villages around.
