Engadine treasure chest that has fascinated for decades
High above the Inn, far away from the valley road and the railway line, Guarda shines like a beacon in the sun. It fascinates and captivates visitors like an open treasure chest: Selina Chönz and Alois Carigiet were inspired by the village of 200 people as early as 1945 and created the story of Schellen-Ursli here.
In 1975 Guarda received the Wakker Prize for its intact village image. And for decades now, city-dwellers with grandiose ideas have been drawn here - out of fascination for the model village of Romanesque culture and tradition. With a great sense of authenticity and passionate craftsmanship, the residents make the fascination tangible for all the senses.
