Discovering Selvapiana

Selvapiana, or Sülapièna, is about a 30-minute walk from the Ludiano grottos and is surprising due to its several large buildings, unlike the classic Ticinese cottages which are also present.

These buildings are the evidence of the population density during the most prosperous period during which 300 people inhabited the upper hamlets, leaving only a few inhabitants on the plain. Along this route discover the rural buildings of the past, then reach Navone, the ancient nucleus of Semione, and pass through the ruins of the Serravalle Castle.


The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it.
