May 28: Ramosch
I explored Ramosch further, but only briefly, as I wanted to cover a lot more ground afterward and it was already mid-afternoon.
You could really launch quite a distance off this trampoline, given its location.
This one seems marginally safer.
The steepness didn't end with the hiking trail.
A framed side view of the Florinuskirche.
Inside the churchyard, intense wall textures.
The nave and apse of the Florinuskirche, similar in layout to the Vnà and Sent churches but scaled way up. The Kirche, originally from the 16th century but having undergone multiple renovations, is named for St. Florinus of Remüs (Remüs is the old name of Ramosch).
A surprisingly baroque organ and a cool openwork masonry balcony railing.
Pews for troublemakers, it would seem.
The slew of steps around the front of the church.
The front gate of the churchyard and, beyond, the infinite front wall of the church.
More intense masonry textures and a stubby tree. What's that curved terra cotta thing?
It's a cool minimalist fountain, that's what!
Very elegant. Interesting that the red color has faded where the water continually splashes.
Starting the descent back down to the bus stop, another sufficiency of louvers.
Back up to the Florinuskirche between a zigzag of houses.
A rather fancily detailed double-decker porch.
Nearing the edge of the village. The fountain sort of looks tipped downhill along with the road, but given the water surface, barring a highly localized gravitational anomaly, it must lie flat.
Finally, way back down to the highway.
The tree terraces through an interestingly constructed fence. I have the nagging feeling I'm being watched.
Boom! Now that's a proper way to tool around the Engadin.
Down at the bus stop along the highway, a look up the Engadin toward Sent.
