Photographer's Note

Photo view to small village of Hospental from the road between St. Gotthard Pass and Andermatt in Swiss Alps at an elevation of 1,470 m a.s.l.
I have taken this photo during my returning from south to north Swizerland.

The village of Hospental is located on the route from Andermatt to St. Gotthard Pass at an elevation of 1,470 m a.s.l. It is the first northern village after St. Gotthard Pass. It has population of 186.

The Catholic Church of Maria Himmelfahrt (see photo) was built in 1705-11. Hospental is first mentioned in 1285 as Hospenthal.
