Via Capricorn

The second stage leads from the Glas Pass over what was once the most important connecting route for the people of the Safien Valley. After lots of turns – known as «Stägä» – it descends to Safien Platz. Onwards through the valley, where the Walser culture has left its mark, and thence to the Turrahus.
