Bellinzona: the city of Castles

Bellinzona Turismo, +41 91 825 21 31

Bellinzona, the capital of Ticino Canton, was historically viewed from the south as the entrance to the Alps, while those coming down from the north considered it the "gate to Italy". Bellinzona today is still rich in this historical-geographical heritage from the Middle Ages, which pulses behind the austere, rigorous façade of a Lombard town situated at the natural closure of the Alpine chain.
