Davos, a valley of East Grisons, 16 miles S.E. of Chur, has become a fashionable health resort. The village of Davos-Platz is 5,105 feet above sea level, and its still dry air and sunshine make it very favourable for diseases of the chest. It now abounds in doctors, hotels, and tourists, and consumptive patients frequently winter there. The 3,500 native inhabitants are chiefly German Protestants.
