The Beautiful Villages in Ticino Switzerland

From the peaks of the peaks to the shores of the lakes, the canton of Ticino is dotted with many towns and villages, each of which has a fascinating past and a unique personality. However, there are six of them that shine with even greater splendor, and tourists who visit them immediately fall in love and crave more.

Lavertezzo

Lavertezzo is a completely stone natural beauty, popular in Ticino, as well as in Switzerland, as a picturesque village on the banks of the river with a beautiful parish church.

But what makes this area famous is its double arch bridge crossing the crystal clear waters of the Verzaska River: in the seventeenth century, it became a meeting place for adventurers who set off from there to plunge into what can only be called icy water.

From the promenade, you can climb the stairs to visit the Church of Santa Maria del Sasso. There are about 400 steps leading to the church. Inside there are magnificent frescoes. The landscape from above is also worth a visit.
