Bellinzona’s castles and market

A UNESCO World Heritage site, a beautiful historic city centre, castles and a famous market: Bellinzona makes a perfect relaxing day out!

The city’s sights and monuments reveal traces of every chapter in its long history. Its group of fortifications is one of the most important examples of late mediaeval defensive structures in the Alps, and in 2000 it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. Every Saturday the city's historic centre hosts the traditional market, one of Ticino's most long-standing traditions, where multi-coloured stalls invite visitors to buy crafts and typical products from the region.
