Terraces in Lower Engadin

One of the special agricultural areas in Switzerland is located in Lower Engadin (Unterengadin,  canton of Graubünden). Between Ardez and Tschlin is an area of terraces for agricultural use on the mountain slopes.

It took centuries of ploughing and digging to create the terraces.

A project in Tschlin makes replicas of these (wooden) water channels and irrigation systems. (www.proterrae.ch)
