The region

Locarno, the Pearl of Lago Maggiore, is famous for its climate and its mild temperature.

The region offers scenic walking tracks and is known as an ideal starting point for wonderful excursions on the lake and to the mountain valleys, for example Valle Verzasca, Centovalli and Vallemaggia. The Sanctuary of the Madonna del Sasso is also accessible by funicular.

Enjoy the old town and the panoramic view of the lake and the Locarnese.

The Film Festival in Piazza Grande is a well-known international cultural event.
