"The first settlers
From the glaciers of Silvretta, Samnaun and the Verwall group all the way to castle Wiesberg, at the valley entrance , on both sides of the Trisanna river spreads one of the most beautiful landscapes in the Alps - the high alpine valley Paznaun and its side valleys.
The first settlers that came in the wildernis of the upper valley of Trisanna were Rhaeto-Romans and Walser. They came from Graubünden and were able, especially in the summer months, almost without obstacles start using the high alpine pastures in the side valleys. In the beginning they stayed only in summer, later they build their houses and stayed in the valley all year round. The Paznaun remained for centuries a valley of farmers, cattle and hunters. The mountain farmer families had a difficult life. They neddded to use every piece of cultivable land to survive.
