Italy 23 March: Chiavenna - St. Moritz
Crossing the border to Switzerland
We enjoyed our stay in the Ostello al Deserto in Chiavenna. The view of the valley is of a rare beauty.
We are welcomed in the "Museo del Tesoro", where most of the religious artifacts of the valley are preserved.
The main piece of the museum is the "Pace" of Chiavenna, a gold on wood cover of an old gospel. The masterpiece is embroidered with gems and is almost a 1000 years old.
Its name, "Pace", in italian literally means peace.
