A special kind of village tour in Zuoz with a twinkle in the eye. Meeting point in front of the Catholic church of Santa Chatrigna in Zuoz.
Despite the centuries-old democratic tradition and the Reformation in 1554, Zuoz is home to a large number of kings and saints.
On a walk through Zuoz - with a good dose of tongue-in-cheek - we pay tribute to the kings and saints of Zuoz. We find these ladies and gentlemen in the churches and chapels of Zuoz, but also in the town hall, in a tunnel, on the roadside and elsewhere.
Walter Isler leads us on this somewhat special tour of the village. St Lucius, St Florinus and St Sebastian will be serenaded by Jürg Stocker on the organ and harmonium respectively. Meeting point is Monday, 16 September 2024 at 13:45 in front of the Catholic Church of Santa Chatrigna in Zuoz (at the village exit in the direction of S-chanf). Duration until approx. 15:15 in Zuoz. Free admission. No registration necessary.
