Good to Know The patricians of yesteryear built their palaces here for very good reason - La Punt lies at the foot of the Albula. And at the gateway of a mysterious valley. Beautifully adorned farmhouses and stately patrician houses from the 16th and 17th centuries stand majestically in the village. The Albertini buildings, with their Biedermeier façades looking out onto the streets, and the imposing Sandoz House, with its hall-like passage leading into the middle of the building.
