Right behind our hostel in the Palagiovani (Youth Palace) begins the old town of Locarno. The center is the Piazza Grande, where in summer events like the Moon&Stars or the Film Festival in front of antique facades enchant the evening mood. During the day the Lago Maggiore or the turquoise blue water in the romantic river valleys of the hinterland invite you to stay. If you prefer to see all the sights from above, why not go on a pilgrimage to the Madonna del Sasso Sanctuary in Orselina and then set out to conquer the summit of Cardada, the local mountain. From there you can see the highest and the lowest point of Switzerland at the same time - almost like the birds of prey of the local falconry.
