Mountain hut Ftan

Alp Urezzas

Ardez - Alp Urezzas
Isolated alp in the Val Tasna at 2113 m altitude


Urezzas mountain hut (2011 m. a.s.l.) - Built in 1832, this mountain hut was extended by a stable in 1903. It is a rare and preserved older chalet with a square floor plan and a hipped roof.  It dates from the time before the appearance of standardised buildings. In 1909 the hut was partially destroyed by an avalanche, but was rebuilt. It was again extended by a small horse stable in 1916 and renovated twice: in 1975 and 2011.
In the milk cellar, produced cheese could be kept cool on racks. The milk cellar used to be used for sleeping directly above the milk cellar, but with the addition of the horse stable and its conversion in 1922, a small chalet with a parlour, a large bunk bed, a dining table and a bench was created. Produced alpine products, such as goat cheese, were sold directly.

The alp is located in the Val Tasna and can be reached in about 4 hours from Ftan.
