Once the Belvedere Tower was a castle, today an idyllic footpath leads through the Swiss stone pine forest around the tower, which is a landmark looking down into the Bregaglia Valley.

A beautiful short circular route leads from the "Maloja Posta" bus station up to Torre Belvedere, which stands alone in what is now a nature reserve area. Once the castle of the Belgian Count Renesse, who wanted to turn Maloja into a top holiday resort at the beginning of the 20th century, only the tower remains today. From here, the path winds its way further through high moors, past glacial pools and through Swiss stone pine groves. A short stretch along the road leads back to the starting point.
