This walk, facing the Magadino plain, boasts several points of interest: a long trail among vineyards and wineries offering some of the best Merlot from the Ticino area.
A visit to the old and beautifully restored housing cluster of Curzútt, testifying to the time when daily life mainly revolved around hillside activities; discovery of the Romanesque church of San Bernardo, featuring a number of beautiful frescoes and, finally, the thrill of crossing one of the longest Tibetan bridges in Switzerland (270 metres).
The trail begins through rows of vineyards and chestnut woods offering magnificent views of the Magadino plain and Lake Maggiore, which can be glimpsed in the background. After passing through several small settlements and following the signs to Curzútt, you will reach a Tibetan bridge that connects the hill of Sementina to the one above Monte Carasso.
Curzútt is easily accessible thanks to the cableway Monte Carasso-Mornera. Cableway online booking: tickets.mornera.ch

Montagnepulite: This project was born to promote an effective management and sustainable use of mountain huts in Ticino, and in particular the litter management. The responsible management of litter in the mountains is a matter of common sense. We can all contribute: https://www.montagnepulite.ch/en/golden-rules
