To the history of the BARGA
The name Barga comes from Romansh and means addition – shed. The architect and artist Keller from Orselina designed and built the restaurant in the year 1965. The exterior construction, as well as, the interior ceiling made of beams are from a stable in the [Bernese] Oberland.
The hardest job was the installation of the ceiling. Panels made of Swiss pine on walls and doors from the year 1683 decorate the room. The floor is laid in the finest handicraft with small, upright oak blocks originating from an old belfry (church tower). You can see the 3 picturesque coat of arms of the 3 leagues: Gotteshausbund [League of God’s House], Oberer oder Grauer Bund [Upper or Grey League] and Zehngerichtebund [League of the Ten Jurisdictions]. Both of the backs of the benches are constructed from the head and side panels of a 300-year-old bed.
Wrought iron grid dividers manufactured by artists from northern Italy, separate both levels. For your protection and eternal happiness, Saint Martin, carved from wood and also the patron saint of Flims, is standing in an alcove.
