    Welcome to Locarno!

    Piazza Grande, with its typical arcades, is the point of departure to visit the historic centre's important sites, like the Visconti Castle and the numerous churches of the Città Vecchia (old city).

    Walking uphill from the Piazza Grande, along the steep and narrow streets, one reaches the “Città Vecchia”, the old and most characteristic part of town. While strolling along the quiet, mostly traffic free lanes, one can find some ancient emblems, reminders of the old town’s history: an arch displaying the house’s coat of arms, beautifully shaped windowsills, some charming portals, an ancient fresco; but the most suggestive and fascinating insights into the world of the old town are inside the patrician houses, the courtyards and the small gardens surrounded by bright arcades.
