A fortress straight out of a storybook! Where the knights once roamed, groups and school classes show up today, eager to spend some princely nights in a dream castle.
The Fondazione Curzùtt - San Barnard was established in 1998 with the aim of reviving the main historic, artistic and scenic testimonies of the "Collina Alta" of Monte Carasso near Bellinzona. The Foundation has furthermore set up a comfortable hostel in order to foster an understanding for and arouse interest in culture and nature by actively including young people. As in most parts of the Ticino, many different eco systems merge together in a tiny area on the Collina Alta of Monte Carasso. The wealth this represents is priceless.
