Tarasp is located on the other side of the valley, at the foot of Piz Pisoc. It consists of ten separate settlements, making it unlike any other village in Lower Engadin. Not only that, its architecture, landscape and religious confessions are also different to those of its neighbours. Built in 1040, the iconic Tarasp Castle dominates the image of Lower Engadin and the history of this former Austrian enclave just as much as the region’s most powerful healing mineral water springs. The immediate proximity to the distinctive 3,000-metre-high mountains, access to the national park, the picturesque Lake Nair, the Clemgia gorge or the impressive Val Plavna are other great reasons to visit the other side of the valley.
