  • The heart of the city that seems to live many lives in the year alternating periods of chaos and crowding where teems with life, people and tourism and others where you do not see anyone miss me to pay it and the locals around are closed and deserts. A space so great and beautiful is a sin suffers from low so resounding, you could do a lot more and enjoy it all year round due to its enormous attractiveness and beauty.

  • A Plaza that tells much of the story. There you will find traditional restaurants and various shops. I recommend especially in summer when the Moon and Stars or during the Locarno Film Festival. Winter skating rink becomes very particular environment, however the rest of the year leaving out of dance shows or celebrations of small/medium entity remains unfortunately empty and is not valued enough.

  • Square feature, typical of the place. Where the Locarno film festival. Nice lighting. Council to see it at night.

  • Locardo is a small lake side town. Despite variety of restaurants and hotels serving food, you might still need a recommended place to get some necessity even probably food stuff too, away from being too tourist! So smacked in the Locardo old town, this Swiss's Coop provides almost everything rivaling those at Lucern and Zurich for items I keep going back to get while in Switzerland. Having a neatly packed Coop at the Piazza Grande brings out the nostalgic local out of the tourist in you.
  • Nice grocery store
  • Since back with more retail space has improved a lot more articles d eat and also no food very friendly staff
