The three castles which loom over Bellinzona… also loom large in any list of Ticino’s main attractions. Due to their great historical, cultural and architectural value, these mediaeval fortifications are one of UNESCO’s 12 Swiss World Heritage Sites. Just 20 minutes’ drive from Lugano, you’ll find yourself travelling back in time, visiting the castles or wandering amongst the stalls at the traditional market held on Saturdays.
