The cultural archive collects documents on the culture of the Upper Engadine and the surrounding regions, thereby saving endangered cultural assets.
The Upper Engadine Cultural Archives is a public institution that collects documents on the culture of the Engadine population and makes them available to interested parties. The institution aims to professionally promote and deepen cultural knowledge of the Engadine and neighbouring regions, especially in the fields of art, architecture, archaeology, history, photography, film, literature, language, music and natural history.
