The route Maloja - Casaccia, also called "Malögin", leads along the remains of the ancient Roman road. You walk past the church ruins of San Gaudenzio on the right side of the valley on to Casaccia.
Vicosoprano was the historic main town of the valley. Places of interest in the village are the church of San Cassiano built around the year 1000, the church of Santa Trinità - an early baroque building, the praetorium with the torture chamber, the Salis family tower and the old bridge over the Maira River. At the exit of the village in the direction of Borgonovo the two pillars of the gallows can be found.
