San Salvatore – pinnacle of enjoyment

Lugano's Sugarloaf Mountain, Monte San Salvatore: one reaches its peak comfortably via cable car, or one can take the most challenging fixed rope trail in Switzerland to the peak. There is a magnificent panoramic view at 912 meters above sea level.

Lugano’s home mountain and pinnacle of enjoyment - that’s San Salvatore! The striking mountain south of the town boasts 360° views over the lake and environs, far south and to the high Alps in the west.
