Monte Lema "on the way of alpine pastures" - La Casera di Miglieglia 25.10.2020

Thematic trail with roast chestnuts

The starting point is at Monte Lema SA Cable Car station at Miglieglia followed by a 10 – 15 minute cable car ride to the top of this amazing mountain, amongst Ticino’s most impressive summits.

A multilingual tourist guide will accompany you as you visit this mountain’s natural treasures, along a trail which will lead you from the mountain-top to the valley-bottom, featuring woodland, alpine pastures and beautiful peaks offering awe-inspiring vistas. The rural landscape offers a plethora of evocative sensations, an abundance of history and thrilling experiences in an environment permeated by the sweet aroma of rhododendrons and majestic beech-woods; you’ll also come across ancient buildings bearing witness to an era of toil and hardship.  

At around the halfway point (snack) you’ll be offered roast chestnuts, a local tradition in a magnificent building belonging to the Civic Community of Miglieglia in the Alpetti area, together with a welcome glass of wine and traditional cold cuts and salumi.
After eating the chestnuts, you’ll continue along the trail towards Miglieglia, partly along the old path which is still largely cobblestoned.

A memorable journey amidst picturesque landscapes, local traditions and heritage, a different way to spend an afternoon either in the company of friends or family.
