The legend of Weger Baschi
In a slight dell, the old houses and agricultural buildings stand close together. Legends entwine around a famous inhabitant, Weger Baschi. As a muleteer, he is said to have carried completely exhausted mules and their loads over the Goms passes. Legend or truth? Moreover, the village is proof of its ability to come to terms with the forces of nature. Because of the necessity to build a dam against avalanches, the Lake Geschinen was created as a source of building material and an appeal for nature and people looking for recreation.
