Morcote, a jewel on the shores of Lake Lugano, knows how to envelop lovers in a timeless atmosphere with its picturesque alleyways.

Morcote is one of the most beautiful villages in Switzerland. In fact, the  village on Lake Lugano is part of the Swiss federal Inventory of sites worthy of protection. With its characteristic small alleys, the arcades of old patrician homes, valuable architectural monuments and its natural beauty, Morcote is considered “the Pearl of Ceresio”. Of particular architectural interest, is the church of Santa Maria del Sasso, the terraced cemetery and the Tower of the Captain.

For those who love the nature and peace of these places, the beautiful Scherrer gardens, full of exquisite subtropical flora on the lakefront, is the perfect setting. Morcote has all the characteristics for tourists to feel welcome as guests and offers various excursions and other relaxing opportunities.
