World Heritage Days - Monte San Giorgio

A weekend dedicated to the UNESCO World Natural and Cultural Heritage. In these days we celebrate our heritage. Discover the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Switzerland.

 

Monte San Giorgio, surrounded by the waters of Lake Ceresio, is characterized by picturesque villages and is immersed in a landscape of rare beauty that invites contact with nature. Underneath it, in seven sedimentary levels dating back to the Middle Triassic, are hidden fossiliferous treasures of rare beauty, which tell a story 240 million years old, when the mountain was a sea basin. The modern museum structure of Meride offers visitors a fascinating window from which to admire fossils from an exceptional state of conservation and a glimpse into this secret world.
