The picturesque town was founded in 1253 by Walser settlers and appears radiantly beautiful today with its original houses of masonry and wood.

Onsernone-Maggia-und Verzasca Valley: Onsernone Valley / Lake Cavegna:
a wild, deeply cut V-shaped valley that is oriented in the east-west direction to the course of the sun; steep, impassable valley sides, the sunny villages glued on rocks half way up the terraced southern slope. Away from urban centres, the valley has its peace and quiet, preserves its special magic of nature and culture. The Maggia Valley, ramifies and forks itself like a hand: in to Val di Campo and Val di Bosco, Val Bavona, Val Lavizzara and Val Peccia, a big hand with gnarled and crooked fingers, laced with blue veins of water for bathing, which originate from Alpine passes and mountain ridges.
Verzasca Valley:
is a wildly romantic and fascinating valley, which has preserved the primitive characteristics of the southern Alpine side valleys. It is a tourist region that has many interesting activities, both in culture as well as in landscape or sport

Cruise ride on the Lake Maggiore: Intra market (Italy).
The city Intra Verbania also presents one of the much visited markets on Lake Maggiore. The lakeside road to the border crossing Brissago (Madonna di Ponte) is usually busy. Why not use ship or hydrofoil boat?
Among the wide range of options the following items are popular: Fresh cheese, mozzarella, parmigiano, pecorino, fish from the lake and rivers, a wide choice of sausages, bread and pastries, a variety of honey products. Even in winter, the market stalls are loaded with fresh vegetables. Shoes, bags, belts and leather jackets are big hits like in the rest of northern Italian markets.
Brissago Islands,
with the botanical garden of the canton Ticino, offer us the opportunity to get away from the noise, chaos and stress of everyday life. The exotic plants, colours and fragrances promote our physical and psychological wellbeing.
