SAVOGNO

SAVOGNO A UNIQUE VILLAGE IN THE ALPS

 

Savogno is located on the sunny panoramic terrace above the Aquafraggia waterfalls, in the village of Piuro, at an altitude of 932 m.

Savogno is a unique example of rural architecture with stone houses and wooden balconies criss-crossed by paved lanes. Already in the Middle Ages, Savogno was a transit point for those going to Chur, the capital of the Three Grey Leagues.

 

 

The village was inhabited until the 1960s being a major transit point to the Val di Lei, but with the gradual evacuation to the towns of the valley, it became almost deserted. 

 

 

In the evening Savogno is a wonderfull place to visit thank to its scenographic lighting

 

The village of Savogno has now been remarkably renovated and with the re-making of the alpine hut the "Rifugio Savogno", allows visitors to discover this fascinating place, admiring the original architecture.

Several trails are available from Savogno. Reachble easly by foot are the village of Dasile and Corbia and after 3h also the lake of Acquafraggia or the panoramic village of Soglio following the Via Bregaglia historical trail.
