Sgraffito decorations

Sgraffito is an artisanal craft that contributes greatly to the unmistakable charm of the Engadin’s villages. Since the height of sgraffito’s popularity between the 17th and mid 18th centuries, many of these decorative paintings have disappeared, worn away by the weather or destroyed when houses are demolished or renovated. However if you’re still keen to explore the origins of the sgraffiti art form, Lower Engadin’s southern slopes are a great place to start. The journey begins in the Schellen-Ursli village and concludes at a Graubünden outdoor museum.
