Intro

The charming town is situated on the gentle slopes of Monte Generoso. Historic as well as cultural values define this town in the southernmost part of Ticino. The picturesque parts of town exemplify the air of the Italian lifestyle and beckon to you to stay awhile.

Mendrisio is the capital of the Mendrisiotto district and is justly called "Il Magnifico Borgo” – the magnificent town. An exciting theme trail with nine signposts points out the cultural highlights of the little town. An audio-guide, available in four languages, can be rented.

Between Monte Generoso and Monte San Giorgio (Unesco World Heritage) there are varied hiking trails that lead through the sun-drenched vineyards.

Don’t miss a visit to the archaeological excavations of Tremona-Castello, the marble quarries near Arzo and the Museum of fossils from Monte San Giorgio!

Summer

Cultural events, museums, lakeshore bathing and swimming pools enliven the warm summer months in and around Mendrisio. Monte Generoso and nearby Monte San Giorgio (Unesco World Heritage site) reign supreme with numerous hiking routes, thematic and nature trails as well as bicycling tours and other activities. The Swiss Miniature Park or the cantonal capital of Lugano is also accessible by water.

  • Mendrisio has been the district capital and political centre since the Middle Ages and the days of the «Landvogt». The town is remarkable for its history and its monuments. Traces dating from the Neolithic and Roman Periods testify to its ancient past. The territory extends up to the picturesque region of Bellavista on Monte Generoso. Mendrisio has contributed a great number of important figures to the Arts, to science, and to politics: the Torrianis, the Baroffios, the Crocis, the Gilardis, the Beroldingens, the Borellas, and the well known Luigi Lavizzari.
