Located at an altitude of nearly 2000 m, 1.2 km long and 500 m wide. This remote alpine plateau is bordered by 2 streams and home to a wealth of flora and fauna. A Walser settlement that was once inhabited all year round, it comprises three hamlets. In Tga, at the foot of Piz Platta, stands the picturesque chapel called the "Visitation of Mary", first mentioned in 1520. The Piz Platta, regarded as the finest mountain in the Surses and the "Matterhorn" of Graubünden, looks almost close enough to touch, to the south-west of the plateau.
