Tour description

A technically very difficult tour through the beautiful high Maggia Valley.

From Prato Sornico we climb to Veia on the little-used main road, from where the first tour returns to Prato Sornico on a single track road technically without equal. The second tour takes us out of the valley to Broglio and then up to Monte di Rima.
A magnificent view over the valley awaits here, and a technically attractive descent that takes us back to the starting point.


Highlights:

Sornico
Community House
Church of S Martino

Peccia
Village of marble for antonomasia. Visit the marble sculpting school and the footpath of sculptures,
a footpath used as a platform to present work, where new sculptures are added annually.

Monti di Rima
Small church and panoramic view over the valley

Mogno (Fusio)
Church of San Giovanni Battista, restored by the architect Mario Botta in 1996


Note(s)

  • Auf dieser Tour stimmen wir den Zeitangaben und den Bewertungen zu. Das Maggiatal ist eine schroffe und wilde Gegend, sie macht Lust auf mehr. Neben den Singeltrails bietet auch die Maggia viele schöne Stellen zum Baden und Erholen.
