The Parc la Mutta (Rhaeto-Romanic Mutta, hilltop) is a row of stones created in the Middle Bronze Age near Falera in the Surselva in the Swiss canton of Graubünden. With a length of 400 m and 36 menhirs, it is the largest of its kind in Switzerland. In addition to several astronomical rows of stones, there are also bowl stones.
The facility is located on the southern outskirts of Falera above Laax at an altitude of around 1250 m. Most of the stones are on the Planezzas plain above the parking lot at the entrance to the village north of the Mutta, a prominently forested hill. The menhirs are boulders made of granite or diorite, the largest is more than two meters high. A large part of the stones must have been brought to Planezzas from the slope above the village.
With the help of information boards and provided plans, visitors can find out more about the facility. In the summer season, there are guided tours through the facility.
