Castelgrande and Historic Town Center

With its medieval atmosphere, the capital of Ticino, Bellinzona, is the most evocative town in the Italian-speaking region of Switzerland. Castelgrande is the most impressive of its three famous UNESCO castles, soaring above the beauty of the historic town center. Witness to centuries of history written by Romans, Lombards, Milanese and Swiss, the castle reveals the reasons behind its importance. Walk down into the intimate heart of Bellinzona with its lively squares where, amidst elegant patrician houses, stands the only Italian theater in Ticino, a neoclassical jewel built in the style of La Scala in Milan. The Collegiata Church, an eclectic explosion of art and architectural styles, is home to the second oldest pipe organ in Switzerland. Tour suitable for families with children from 6 years of age.
