Village tour of Maloja

Maloja lies at an altitude of 1,817 metres, and is strikingly beautiful in every season. Politically, it forms part of the Val Bregaglia (Comune di Bregaglia), but geographically it belongs to the Upper Engadin. Dramatic features of the resort include constructions by the Belgian count Camille de Renesse – notably the Maloja Palace and the Belvedere Tower, the symbol of the village. Nearby is one of the largest collections of glacier mills in Europe.

Maloja was also the chosen home and place of work of the painter Giovanni Segantini for several years (1894-1899). Located in the village are the Casa Segantini, the Atelier Segantini, the Chiesa Bianca (“White Church”) in which Segantini’s body was laid out after his death, and the cemetery in which the Segantini family lies buried.
