Il "sentiero raccontato"

Along this trail you’ll be able to discover local stories and legends. With this initiative we would like to provide you with the possibility of discovering and appreciating the enchanting Capriasca region.

“A rock, a lake, two frescoes, a fountain, a village, a sarcophagus, all elements of our territory to which a particular legend or story is connected. We went to talk to the elderly people of our towns and we let them tell us the stories that they had heard when they were children. We re-wrote and illustrated these stories, which for so many years had been passed down from one generation to the next only by word of mouth, so that finally they will not be lost. The chain that tied us to our ancestors will not be broken. We are therefore glad to offer you this brochure illustrating an itinerary that can be travelled on foot through the Capriasca region. Along the trail you’ll be able to discover local stories and legends. We hope to have offered you a great opportunity to get to know and appreciate our extraordinary region.”

Please Note:
To follow the “Storytelling Trail” in the pre-established order, you must depart from the Origlio parking lot. The latter is well indicated and is found along the Cantonal road, near Origlio’s Municipality. Since this is a circular trail, you can depart from whichever point you wish.

Montagnepulite: This project was born to promote an effective management and sustainable use of mountain huts in Ticino, and in particular the litter management. The responsible management of litter in the mountains is a matter of common sense. We can all contribute:
