In the Lenzerheide resort, churches, mountains and other cultural treasures bear witness to the early trade on the Alpine passes. Discover and experience these relics on the various cultural and chapel routes.
A new cultural route has been created between Vazerol and the ruins of Belfort Castle. Information boards along the “Voia Culturala” provide fascinating facts about the culture and history of the region.
The first stop on the cultural route is the “Bündner Rütli” near Vazerol. Rural councillors would have come here in the 15th and 16th centuries, to discuss alternatives to the peasants’ revolt. One of the most important historic treasures is located in the Pfarrkirche St. Calixtus, the second stop on the “Voia Culturala”. This refers to the masterfully carved, late Gothic winged altar. It is regarded as the most important altar in Graubünden. The third stop of the cultural route is the ruin of Belfort Castle. Over 500 years ago, Belfort Castle was stormed and burnt down prior to the Battle of Calven (1499). In recent years, the castle ruin has been restored, secured and made accessible. The fourth and final stop is the “Paunt dalla Dieschma”. The trade route led over this, until the road network was rebuilt in around 1830. The quarry stone arch is partly original, and the concrete stone path is still visible.
