Took train from Lugano and spent half the day walking around here! So much to see and enjoy or just pull of a chair and sip a cold drink! Saturday is market day so it was double the fun.

Busy roundabout with an obelisk in the middle. It's not ugly itself but if you are visiting Bellinzona for the first time there are much more deserving.
