Sent

In folklore the Sentner people were considered to be «Ils asens» – donkeys. But there's no sign of foolishness in the picturesque Engadin village. The «Energy City» 2011 showcases itself as a natural recreation area and a place of culture. But those who seek donkeys will find none.
Sent lies at 1430m above sea level, high above the River Inn. The village in the Lower Engadin was first mentioned under the name of Vicus Sindes in 930 AD. Today it has a population of almost 1000 (as at 2011) and is a mecca for the Rhaeto-Romanic language. In 2000, 68% of Sent's inhabitants declared Rhaeto-Romanic to be their mother tongue.

The municipality of Sent borders Austria to the north and reaches the Italian border to the south. The «Traversada», a former important trading route crossed through the municipality in times gone by: from Austria through the Val Sinestra to Sent and on through the Val d'Uina to Italy.

Many rare and otherwise endangered plants grow on the unfertilized rough pastureland around Sent, especially in Val Sinestra, which has been prized for its picturesque diversity by the Swiss Foundation for Landscape Conservation.

Several fires have left marks on the village over the course of time. Up to the early 20th century there were at least seven major fires. The first on 14 March 1499 was caused by the Swabian War. Austrian Army troops penetrated into the Engadin and burned whole villages to the ground including Sent. Time and again, parts of the village fell victim to the flames, the last time in June 1921.

The ruins of San Peder Church are found at the western end of the village. It was probably built in 1173 AD. Today, Sent's landmark is in private hands. The village church of San Lurench stands testament to Late Gothic «Bündnerstil» (Graubunden style).

Typical for Sent are the so-called Sgraffiti, murals that are scratched into the external rendering on buildings. They serve the stylish adornment of buildings and can be seen on houses throughout the village. Other architectural features are the sweeping, curved gables known as «Senter Gables».

Highlights

  • Covered wooden bridge – with a length of 60.5 metres, the wooden bridge dating from 1868 is the longest wooden bridge still standing in Graubunden. A large rock serves as an intermediate support.
  • Parkin Not dal Mot – a park by contemporary artist Not Vital. The artist's works can be viewed from June to October.
  • Val Sinestra – Val Sinestra has been prized for its diversity by the Swiss Foundation for Landscape Conservation.
  • Rope Park Engadin – the camp site and rope park are ideal summer attractions. In winter the park is transformed into a fairy-tale snowscape with igloos and ice-skating trails.
