the city of Bellinzona is topped by 3 magnificent medieval castles recognized by UNESCO. For the more fit are all within walking distance, in each case there is a tourist train that stops at every castle. In the city center you can visit the first one: Castelgrande.

This town is a beauty to behold. Sitting as it does,as you climb to the top of the castles,you see down the valleys that were to protect. The stone fortresses,the old town,the piazzas,all make you feel like it must be a movie set. It is just a gem
