“As close to God as possible-Sighignola”

Attraction details
Reviewed August 1, 2014

6 kilometers from village Lanzo d'Intelvi, climbing with your car uphill on a nerrow road, you will get to a unique observiasion point. We have seen a lot of them on previose trips in different countries, but to our humble opinion this one makes you feel "closest of all to Almighty". The hight and the view are undescibable. Who ever is in vecinity, it's a must place. The picture i attach can not express the unbelivable beauty that unveals in front of you, but here is a small peece of it. Small kiosk with soft drinks and sandwiches availiable by parking facilites. (Best you have your own supply). Just make it on a good weather day.

Approached by a challenging road with around a dozen hairpin bends, Lanzo d'Intelvi is a remote little community located at approximately 1000m. There is an interesting church, a couple of bars and a restaurant or two along with several beautiful walks, most particularly two with outstanding views of Lake Lugano and the city of Lugano in Switzerland in the distance.
For a relaxing, unstressfull, quiet holiday, there can be few better resorts in which to unwind away from the busy commercial world outside. Go for it!

Having a free day with National Holidays another guest and I had a very pleasant walk up to the viewpoint and back. Cyril 84 years young and myself walked the just over seven mile return route from the Hotel Milano Lanzo D'Intelvi. This walk can be done all on tarmac if you wish, Cyril being the adventurous type lead the way up and down. We walked on tarmac for the first two miles then at the Café Scuola Sci Valle D'intelvi, Cyril struck left up on a marked track into the woods to rejoin the road near the top. Our reward was to see a deer glazing in the woods. see photos.

At the top we enjoyed a coffee in Italy while looking over Switzerland. After the coffee break Cyril lead the way into Switzerland. Walk back downhill around 20 yards past the café to pick up a path on the right. This path leads you into Switzerland and the Swiss viewpoint. see photos.

Our way back to Hotel Milano Cyril lead the way mainly off road, using the walk/cycling routes through the woods. The route does come out in a different part of Lanzo, but just follow the signs for the centre and Monica's bar where we had a well deserved drink. see photos.

We took the walk at a very easy pace and with 2 longish stops we did the round trip walk (hotel to hotel) of over seven miles in 5 hours.

To end may I thank "young at heart" Cyril for a very pleasant day out.

As fantastic as everyone says, bring a warm jacket as it can get chilly up there. Couples, I think this is the perfect place for a proposal, just make sure the ring doesn't get blown over the side! Note, you drive into lanzo D'intelvi, and then look for signs on the right hand side, the map coordinates are a touch misleading.

This is one of the most wonderful sights of the alpes il Lombardia. It is important to choose the correct day but it is clearly visible the Lugano lake.. Lago maggiore... Monte rosa and in very clear day also monviso mountain. Really incredible.. You can get from Italy or from Switzerland going up through the Val Mara.
