Walking in Ticino: the three castles of Bellinzona
Bellinzona, the capital of Ticino, welcomes you with a friendly spirit and the warm colors of the buildings in the historic center. But the city is not only famous for its picturesque old town or for the nearby valleys, but also for the presence of three imposing fortified castles and an ancient city wall that, in 2000, were declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO. We chose Bellinzona to spend a sunny Sunday in February and this is the report of our visit.
