If you are not hiding in a small narrow back street, you will almost always have lookouts on mountains from where ever in the village; as the village is built on the right banks of the Ova Bernina and Flaz rivers, on the slopes of Piz Languard, you will enjoy most views to the South and West.
The Ibex on the picture is a sculpture :((, but the landscape is overall beauriful, when you walk on the main street at the easter end of the village (picture 1) with Piz Marsch and Piz ot in the background.
Piz Nair and Corviglia can be seen from the main street (picture 2), and broad view of Northern Engadine (picture 3) from the Eastern end of the village.
Just walk in the village, the nice houses in foreground, the mountains in background, not much more to tell (picture 4)
And you can prepare your trips to high Bernina valley and the glaciers, when looking to the Bernina from the village (picture 5). . . .
