Onsernone-Maggia-Verzasca valley: Onsernone valley / Lake Cavegna: a wild, deeply carved V-valley, which is aligned in its east-west orientation with the direction of the sun; steep, barren valley sides; half way up the terraced southern slopes of sunny villages glued to the rocks. Away from urban centres the valley has its stillness and peace, retains its special magic of nature and culture. The Maggia valley branches out, forks and divides itself like a hand: in to Val di Campo and Val di Bosco, Val Bavona, Val Lavizzara and Val Peccia; a large hand with gnarled and crooked fingers, laced with blue waterlines for bathing, which springs from Alpine passes and mountain ridges. Verzasca valley: is a wildly romantic and fascinating valley, which has retained the primitive characteristics of southern alpine valleys. It is a tourist area, which offers many interesting things in culture as well as in landscape or even with respect to sports
