San Salvatore - Morcote, through nature and culture

Let Monte San Salvatore amaze you: it will treat you with splendid views over the region and beautiful walks. To begin, choose the trek which from its summit reaches right down the lake in Morcote. From the terrace on the mountain summit you’ll find yourself immersed in a fantastic setting comprising the lake, the Padan Plain and the peaks of the Swiss and Savoy Alps. Don’t miss Carona though, a picturesque and artistic village, where Hermann Hesse used to live. And admire Parco San Grato too, with its rhododendrons, azaleas and conifers.
