Typical scattered settlement in the Safiental valley. «Bim Turra» (Safien Turrahus), a former transfer station on Safierberg over which the Walsers migrated in the 14th century. Traditional wooden buildings, shingle roofs, «Stegelzuun» (slanted fences) as well as Camaner huts: typical individual Alpine dairies.
