Umgebung der Funtana da Suolper mit Informationstafel
Near Funtana da Suolper there can be a smell of sulphur, as the name, in English «Sulphur Spring», also suggests.

Description

The Funtana da Suolper hides in the Vallatscha valley just above Tarasp. A simple spring right next to the stream brings the mineral water to the surface, which is best tasted with a cup you have brought along. The drained water forms an orange-reddish spring tufa in the stream.
