Museum Forte Airolo

Valle Leventina, 6780 Airolo, +41 79 794 32 92

The Airolo Fort used to be important in Switzerland as defence system. Travellers reaching the first curves in the old St. Gotthard road, just above Airolo, will unavoidably wonder what this impressive wall, with a tortoise-shell granite covering and surrounded by a deep trench, was for.
