Info Turistiche

Teglio is the municipality, in the province of Sondrio in the Rhaetian Alps, which gives its name to Valtellina. Its centre is about 900m above sea level on a sunny and panoramic area, a position that has earned it strategic importance in the past.

Next to the road sign in Teglio, another plaque represents it as the ‘Homeland of Pizzocchero’, a variety of pasta made from buckwheat flour and dressed with potatoes, savoy cabbage or chard, depending on the season, Valtellina Casera cheese, butter, garlic and sage.
