Nice village in full swing, with farming and industrial activities. The hamlets of Gordemo, Scalate, Gaggiole, locations sought for vacations, lie on the hill, rich with some of the most beautiful vineyards in the canton. On the plain, extensive cultivation of vegetables. Gordola hosts the professional school of the building and contractor's association as well as a cantonal junior high school. Train stop on the Locarno - Bellinzona line. The "Monti Motti", marvelous promontory with splendid views of Lake Maggiore and the Verzasca Valley, are also part of Gordola. The hike to Pizzo Sassariente is very nice. Of particular interest: in the parish church there are two good copies of paintings by Gerrit van Honthorst (1590 - 1656).
