Anyone traveling from Bignasco towards Lavizzara is fascinated by this mountainside village that appears to be stuck half way up the mountain directly at the entrance to the valley. But already the journey to Brontallo at 716 meters above sea level offers a series of discoveries and a kind of personal magic spell. Firstly, the stables all look the same, facing the valley and located on the same slope. Then the steep, endless terrace slopes - not to speak of the vertical rock walls above the village.
Some really spectacular hikes are made in the vast area of Brontallo, accompanied by some wide-sweeping and truly breathtaking views. And on roads leading to the Alps and the peaks, one can sympathize with the efforts and struggles of our ancestors that were necessary for a number of purposes yesteryear. Grandiose, if not amazing, are also the sections carved out of the rock between Spulüi and Cantone (the section is secured with a wire).
Immersed in stunning alpine scenery, Agritourism establishments in Brontallo provide an ideal solution for those seeking tranquility, peace and direct contact with nature. Open all year; here you have the opportunity to experience the mountains and all the various facets at any time of year you choose.
