During the Reformation, the towns of the region converted to Protestantism, but Müstair, barricaded behind the walls of its monastery, remained Catholic.

The big attraction here is the Carolingian convent of St John the Baptist, dating from the 8th century; it contains the best-preserved and most extensive collection of Carolingian wall paintings in the Alps.

The convent is closed to the public but the church opens daily 8am–7pm, and a museum with guided tours tells the history of the convent.
