Locarno, Lake Maggiore’s gem

Thanks to its position, on the Northern bank of Lake Maggiore, and to its particular microclimate, Locarno is the hottest town in Switzerland. Its typical Mediterranean vegetation grows in full bloom giving the town a unique and unforgettable charm.
Locarno is internationally famous for the annual Cinema Festival, whose first edition was in 1946. It is the oldest Cinema Festival, only after the Cinema Festival of Venice, whose first edition was in 1932.
Many monuments and buildings represent the town, as the Viscontea Castle, which dates back to the 12th Century, the Sanctuary of Virgin Mary of Sasso of Orselina, from which there is an amazing view of Lake Maggiore, and the zip line Cima Cardada-Cimetta designed by the famous architect Mario Botta.
The town centre is certainly Piazza Grande, where all the roads of the old town meet. Many cafes and typical restaurants will seduce you with the delicious
specialities.
