The tiny church of Sta.Maria in Pontresina dates back to the 13th century and inside it has some very interesting frescos in byzantinian style. Unfortunately I had been there at a time, when it was closed, but it looks interesting also from outside, including the cemetery around of it. Check the openingtimes below !
Sta Maria chapel in Pontresina is in the upperpart of the village, you can drive there on a narrow and steap road and will find a few parkinglots up there, but it is certainly better to walk there.
