The town of Mendrisio and the surrounding area has more vineyards than anywhere else in the entire canton of Ticino and is renowned for its excellent food and wine. Today, Mendrisio is known as the Magnifico Borgo (magnificent town), testifying to its history and the wealth of monuments in its historic centre that remind us of its illustrious past: evocative narrow streets, typical houses with inner courtyards and tiled terracotta roofs, medieval and baroque churches.
A Sagra is a local festival held to celebrate a patron saint or the harvest, while also promoting good local food and wine. It aims to provide people with an opportunity to explore the historic centre of this Magnifico Borgo and to discover its traditions, customs and local products.
The three-day programme is organised by a pool of local partners who share the project's objectives: La Vineria dei Mir, the Civica Filarmonica di Mendrisio and the A'gasem Sports Association.
Free entrance during the day: Friday and Saturday until 18:30 and Sunday throughout the day.
Entrance fee (CHF 8.- ): Friday 27th and Saturday 28th September from 6.30 pm
The membership form for associations, exhibitors and dealers can be downloaded from the website www.sagradelborgo.ch and must be submitted by 30 April to the e-mail [email protected]
