Place of captivating idyll and power

Sunny Cademario is 800 metre above sea level and is about twelve kilometres away from Lugano. The view over the Capriasca to the borders to Italy and down over the Lugano lake is a real vision. Embedded in the middle of a unique woodland landscape this favourite trip location has lost none of its idyllic charm.

Something really worth seeing is the Sant’Ambrogio church with its frescoes from the 13th century, as well as the old village centre with its tight alleyways. As a so-called  ”pressure place“ an extraordinary number of pressure points were measured here

Near Cademario you find the “Alpe Agra“ nature reserve, 935 metres above sea level. It is registered as a protective  zone of national importance in the Federal inventory of amphibian spawning areas .
