The Church of St. Maria is one of the most precious sacred buildings of Grisons. The burial church was built in the 11th century and features exposed paintings and frescoes from the 13th and 15th century. Photography is not permitted.

We stopped here on our way to the carriage ride up Val Roseg but the church was closed. It opens a little later in the day so we went back after the carriage. Nice murals or frescoes inside but no photos inside.

a short walk from the centre of Pontresina is this medieval church with beautiful frescos and views over the village and the valley. Next to it is an abandoned tower from a similar period. It's worth continuing the hike up the mountain over meadows or through the forest to the top of the little chairlift that is open in the summer. late in the evenings, the mountain side is full of little marmottes, whistling away when you approach them.

At the height of the Alps you come across this little church with beautiful frescoes, The Burial Church of Santa Maria built in the 12th century.
There is an interesting graveyard alongside the church.

Once a week free walking tours through Pontresina and a visit to the Church of Santa Maria are offered by the tourism office. Very interesting, they can be done individually or combined. The church is very cold inside, even on warm sunny days and the guided visit takes a good half hour.

A short walk from central Pontresina takes you part way up the mountain to this secluded medieval church. A charming interior with numerous frescoes awaits you, as well as an ancient burial ground. Good way to spend a leisurely hour in the afternoon. Note, it's only open for an hour or two each afternoon. Check the Internet for times.

The only thing to mention is that the church itself was only open from 3:30 to 5:30 at the end of August. If you want to see the inside, better check ahead to see if it will be open.

The church is old and simple. Don't expect Austrian style elaborate decoration. It's amazing how intact the Roman tower is given that historically this is the middle of nowhere.

We were invited to tag along with two brothers to see this old Church in Pontresina. We got on the train in St. Moritz and went to Pontresina. We walked up through the streets and came to the old Church. It is no longer in use but the cemetery that surrounds the Church is still utilized. A lot of the headstones were amazing, we saw some dates that went back to the 1700's. After we walked through the cemetery and around the church we walked down a path and came to an ancient Roman outpost tower. I wish we could have taken a look inside but there was no way to get in. The view of Pontresina and the surrounding mountains was breath taking. After we left the tower we walked along a graveled trail through the pine trees above the town and came to a fountain where you could get an ice cold drink of fresh spring water. We then walked back into town and found a quaint little restaurant and had some fresh hand tossed pizza with pepper and garlic flavored olive oil and ice cold beer. A very relaxing and quite day away from the crowds.
