Glacier garden

Cavaglia Glacier Garden: time travel to the pots of the giants. Guided tours from May to October.

Glacier garden tour

A jewel of nature, the glacial mills of the Giardino dei Ghiacciai di Cavaglia. The glacial mills, also called "pots of the giants", were shaped by the Pal├╝ glacier. Over thousands of years have the glacial water, the debris and the gravel worked the hard rock and ground huge holes into the ground - an impressive natural phenomenon. Framed by abundant flora and varied alpine vegetation, the glacier mills are one of the most impressive things the Val Poschiavo has to offer!
