The Castle of Sasso Corbaro

Description

A typical Sforza castle, because it is very geometrical in shape. It is in the square courtyard surrounded by high walls which are 4.70 meters thick. In the South there is the lookout tower. Together with the castles of Castelgrande and Montebello, it was included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites which constitutes the main attraction of the capital of Ticino.

The Castle of Sasso Corbaro stands elegant 230 meters above Bellinzona towering over the entire city. This location makes Sasso Corbaro a fantastic vantage point with magnificent views taking in the Riviera valley and the Pizzo di Claro to the north and Lago Maggiore to the South.

A visit to the castles of Bellinzona is a must for everyone in Ticino. The long history of the Castles of Bellinzona is now presented in three museums open to the public. To visit the castles of Bellinzona in comfort you can take a ride with Arthur, the little train of castles.

Exhibition opening-times:
From 17th March 2018 to 4th November 2018: from 10 am to 6 pm
From 5th November to 15th March the archaeological museum is closed.
