The name Lukmanier is derived from the Latin lucus magnus, the "great forest".
The discovery of a Roman coin treasure near Malvaglia indicates that the pass was already passed at that time. It experienced its first heyday in the Frankish Empire, when the monastery of Disentis was founded at the beginning of the 8th century. In 1374, the monastery built a hospice dedicated to St. Mary below the top of the pass. In 1964, the hospice and chapel had to give way to the reservoir. Both were rebuilt on the pass road. The new hospice was inaugurated on August 1, 1965.
