Generally, museums are in big cities, or at least in highly visited villages, but hardly are they ever on a 2,100-meter-high mountain pass.
The Gotthard Exhibition Cheese Dairy also features a restaurant and a store.
A unique experience is waiting for you at Alp Piora: be enchanted by the traditions of alpine life and the secrets of its famous specialities. After a hike along the Lago Ritom nature trail, you and the master butchers of Ticinella (Rapelli SA) will discover the exclusive Prosciutto dell’Alpe Piora and the maturation cellar where the raw ham is gradually refined by the aromas of the high mountains. The visit is rounded off with an aperitif of typical Ticino specialities and wines.
