"Locarno" Locarno by barbskie

Locarno Travel Guide: 124 reviews and 299 photos

Locarno, the Lady of the Camellias is one of the most famous town of South Switzerland at the lake of Maggia. Palms are growing here ,no wonder, the area owns the mildest climate of the country. Popular to its Sanctuary of Madonna del Sasso that dominates uphill and the yearly International Film Festival . The city has been an important tourist destination for over a century. There are numerous excursions up the valleys and around the lake.

The lake and its beach resort is of course, a great area to spend a while or for those who have enough time, just sit and relax in one of the restos.

    What a lovely lake area and the Tower by Visconti is a real treat to see. Good job of pictures and comments.
