Culture and places of interest Prayer call

Every evening, a prayer call is offered up from most of the alpine pastures to ask for protection from evil spirits and disaster.

From July to September, a prayer call is offered up every evening from the alpine pastures in the Sargans region. This quaint tradition is rooted in nature. The alpine prayer combines pastoral pagan rites with Christian traditions. The prayer call is offered up to banish the evil spirits of nature and protect the alpine region.

The prayer call is offered up between 20:00 and 21:00.
