Fodor's Review

If you walk through the Swiss National Park over the Ofen Pass to the Münster valley and Italy, you can visit the Benedictine Convent of St. John at Müstair, a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the Italian border. The convent is still active and has fasting weeks in spring and fall. Take time to wonder at the Romanesque frescoes from AD 800–1170; more paintings are being uncovered using laser technology. Admission is free. The appealingly simple convent complex also houses a small museum with baroque statues and Carolingian works.
