Ticino: land of culture and artists

The region is scattered with monuments and artworks of a rare beauty. All around, history, architecture and art intertwine, blending harmoniously into the landscape.

Ticino is also a UNESCO destination with two sites elected part of the World Heritage. We are very proud to have in our region the Castles of Bellinzona (since 2000) and the Monte San Giorgio (2003).

Ticino features a variety of special events – as well as one of Switzerland’s longest open-air festival seasons. Organize your event to coincide with one of our top events: Film Festival Locarno, Moon&Stars, Jazz Ascona, Estival Jazz and many more.
