The Rätia Ampla castle in Riom is the largest in the district of Surses. After the fire in the village in 1864 the wood of the fort was used for reconstruction. The former bishop's castle, built in 1227, can be viewed from the outside.
The village of Salouf is characterised by the partly tower-like Walser houses built in the 13th century, but also the dimensions and the style of some houses built in the 17th and 18th century are also impressive.
Bathing lake of Lai Barnagn
What could be better than to refresh oneself in the cool water on a warm summer day or to enjoy the sun on the lake shore? Come to the bathing lake of Lai Barnagn! Here you will find relaxation, games, fun and refreshments at the Lai Barnagn kiosk.
In the Ela hotel the emphasis is placed on using foodstuffs from the region. Thus regional products such as wood-oven baked bread from Salouf, alpine butter and cheese, Salouf honey or Salouf Salsiz sausage find their way into the hotel cuisine.
Stierva liegt am Ausgang des Albulatals auf knapp 1'400 m ü.M. auf einer kleinen Sonnenterrasse. Bereits im 9. Jahrhundert wurde die Pfarrkirche St. Maria Margdalena erwähnt. Gleich nebenan ist die Burg La Tor, die noch heute bewohnt ist.
