Steinsberg Castle in Ardez

The region has been a battlefield for centuries. The Counts of Tyrol, the (Spanish) Habsburgs and local dynasties against other dynasties, the Bünder alliances and their (French) allies.

The village of Ardez (and Ftan) was destroyed but rebuilt soon afterwards. The village is an open-air monument nowadays
