The region of Bellinzona and Valleys

A journey through history and nature

Come to Bellinzona and immerse yourself in the Medieval atmosphere of its three castles, a UNESCO Heritage site. If history is not enough, why not explore the wild nature of Northern Ticino?


Webcams and videos of the region of Bellinzona and Valleys updated 24 hours a day.


Discover a real city. On Saturday mornings, browse among the stalls of its market. And if you love a Carnival, a visit during the playful reign of ‘King’ Rabadan is a must.

Trails are waiting to be discovered on foot or by bike, as they unravel through the valleys. And excursions and sporting events can also take you into an unforgettable fairy-tale Alpine landscape sprinkled with mountain lakes.

This delightful corner of Switzerland awaits you with its unbeatable mixture of history and nature.
