    Giants' Pot-holes - Maloja

    The 7 holes in front of the tower of Belvedere are called the 'Giants' Pot-holes'.

    They are created by a natural fenomenon : the pressure of large glacier stones and water have created round holes in the rocks.

    The largest hole is 11 meter deep and 16 meter broad. They are each surrounded by a fence.
