Ilanz is first mentioned in 765, and became the capital of the newly formed Grey League in 1395.
The Grey League was the second of Three Leagues which eventually formed canton Graubünden.
In the 1520s, the Diet of Ilanz declared that citizens of the Three Leagues should be free to choose
between Catholicism and Protestantism.
We stayed two nights at the Benedictine convent in Ilanz, and then moved to a little flat in a modern house,
owned by a very friendly couple.
