One of Many Beautiful Scenes Along Lake Lugano
This lovely picture helps to demonstrate both the natural beauty and the architectural achievements of this charming southern Swiss town in the Lugano PreAlps. Shown here on a collectible Worldwide Gifts magnetic photo, the image of this picturesque villa next to the lake makes a memorable souvenir from Switzerland, although Lugano itself is part of the Italian-speaking Ticini canton of southern Switzerland, near the border with Italy.
There are many interesting landmarks along Lake Lugano that are considered part of the Inventory of Swiss Heritage Sites of National Significance, including the lovely Cathedral of S. Lorenzo, and the Church of S. Maria degli Angioli. The Palazo Civico (Town Hall) is another notable historic landmark to visit during your vacation at Lake Lugano, and one must certainly take time out to see the famous Biblioteco Cantonale, Lugano’s historical library.
