The location is impressive and offers a beautiful view of the villages of Roveredo and San Vittore and, on the opposite side, the view of the mountain ranges dominated by Pizzo di Claro, which separates the Moesa Valley from the Ticino Valley. The farmsteads and stables of Lanés, about twenty in number, have almost all been renovated into secondary summer residences. The lawns are also generally well cared for or transformed into flower gardens around the houses. The presence of isolated trees near the buildings is visible, many of them having a pitched roof made of corrugated iron sheets. It seems that the iron sheets are have been carried by smugglers during the last world war.
