Disentis (Mustér) is the last greater village before approaching the passes Lukmanier (Pass Lucmagn) to Tessin/Ticino and Oberalp pass (Alpsu) to the Gotthard region. It is located in the uppermost Vorderrhein valley (Rein Anteriur) in the greatest contiguous language region where people talk Romansh. It is the west most part of the Canton of Grisons (Graubünden) in the Swiss Alps.

Central architectural landmark of the whole reagion is the big benedictine abbey St.Martin. Founded round the year 700 it's the eldest benedictine monastery north of the alps. You see it in the northeast of the panorama.
In the foreground you see the 1000mm narrow gauge rails of the Matterhorn-Gotthard-Bahn (MGB) which is built as a rack railway in its steeper parts as here.
