Explore local traditions

The Italian part of Switzerland is full of traditions, be part of it! The warm grey of the fortress’ walls, the granite, the rocks in the valleys, the rustic houses and the dry stone walls are synonymous with the strong roots of Ticino, reflecting traditions and customs handed down through generations. Longevity and authenticity of structures with historic architecture that speaks for itself.

But don’t forget the Ticino delicacies! Comfortably sat at a table, taste the stunning flavours of wine, cheese, polenta and cold meats.
