A canton proud of its past

If you like traditions, Ticino has a lot to offer.

Discover the living history of the region through its popular fetes and history-rich craftsmanship and food.

Local craftsmen create the famous ceramic boccalino mugs, straw-seat chairs and woollen fabrics. If you love good food, you can’t miss a good glass of local Merlot, or dishes created with “farina bona” flour or Zincarlin cheese.

In Ticino, there is still very much a tradition of taking part in the Easter historical processions and the genuine grape festival at harvest time.

Don’t forget your camera!
