Unfortunately, after years of work, the most important Church in Lugano (the Cathedral of s. Lorenzo) will have to wait before we can welcome you back the faithful and tourists inside. In expectation of reopening the Church worth unconditionally a visit outside, to admire the splendid façade "in the wind" (one of the most spectacular architectural expressions of Lombard Renaissance) and the wonderful view of Lugano and its Lake from the small square in front. The comfortable and pleasant is the Cathedral, the lively of the Cathedral to Piazza Cioccaro or ascending the staircase Chiattone lively Piazza Dante (both frequented by tourists for shopping and entertainment); from December will also easily reach the Cathedral coming down from the train station. People with disabilities access is possible, but not very easy with wheelchairs.
