We have already been to a few old town centres before coming to Glorenza, but this town has the most medieval atmosphere. Very small, but not crowded. Good balance between new restaurants/shops/galleries and authenticity.

For an idea of what medieval cities looked like there is no better place to look. Surrounded by its walls and three small gates and less than 1000 inhabitants it is almost a must. I suggest two short visits - in the morning and evening...More

An old walled town, a delight to wander around, admiring the architecture and the shop signs hanging outside. Stop also to admire the skill of the local bus and Swiss postbus drivers getting through the old gateway. Personally I was glad I was staying elsewhere...More
