Glacier Garden in Cavaglia
They are some twelve metres deep and up to five metres wide: the glacial mills near Cavaglia in Poschiavo are an impressive witness to the last ice age. They were formed 11,000 years ago by the movement of the Palü Glacier. The melted ice left behind a fascinating landscape of natural sculptures, formed by the grinding of the stones that over the millennia were pushed into them under the pressure of water from prehistoric glaciers. The Glacier Garden is around 500m from Cavaglia railway station and can be comfortably reached on foot. Incidentally, the best way to travel back to the ice age is accompanied by our expert guides in the course of an official tour.
July - October: each Tuesday at 14.00 o'clock, starting at the railway station.
