Inaugurated in December 2014, Casa Capriata is a highly original three-storey structure raised off the ground, a modern reinterpretation of the Walser architecture of the upper Gressoney valley, designed by Turin architect Carlo Mollino. It is set at an altitude of 2,100 metres in the Weissmatten ski area, can be reached on foot, by ski or chairlift and is currently used as a bar/restaurant.
The kitchen serves simple traditional mountain dishes and offers a take-away service for those who want to have a picnic in the surrounding meadows.
