The newly renovated Restaurant at Monte Lema's peak offers typical regional dishes at a practical and functional self-service bar, that can be eaten either inside the restaurant or outside on the panoramic terrace. There are also comfortable rooms at the characteristic hostel.


Lema Mountain cable car

From Miglieglia, a picturesque village in Alto Malcantone, the Lema Mountain cable car takes just 10 minutes to reach the summit. Here the view extends from the valleys of southern Ticino and Lake Lugano to the valleys of Luino and Lake Maggiore. The horizon stretches as far as the snow-covered Graubunden and Bernese Alps, the Valais peaks and the gentle, teeming Po Valley.
