  • Looks very impressive from the outside but unable to gain access. Not an easy building to photograph as there is not enough room on the terrace to get far enough back to get the full view.  more »
  • Is the Church on the way down at the foot on the funicular from Lugano train station. Church of the great history of the sculpture.

  • The Cathedral of San Lorenzo is located between the train station and the city centre. To reach it you can walk down a long flight of steps from the train station, or climb a beautiful but steep narrow street with local shops that will take you in front of the Cathedral. Luckily after a strenuous climb you'll end up a fountain to quench your thirst, a small garden for relax, the view of the funicular and finish the marvelous view over the city of Lugano and its Lake

Where to stay in Lugano

Picturesque Lugano is known for its deep blue bay and the palm tree-lined waterfront promenade--so it only makes sense to stay close to the heart of the city, the lake. Surrounding the bay are a number of mid-range to high-priced hotels and quaint bed and breakfasts. With such an emphasis on the lake, most of the high-rise hotels have arranged their rooms and balconies in such a way that everyone has a lake view. These waterfront hotels put Lugano a step above its neighboring contenders, outbidding them in style, natural beauty, and sophistication.
