Stepping out of Miglieglia, you can take advantage of over hundred kilometers of hiking trails but the village centralized location also enable you to reach quickly numerous nice places to visit in Ticino.


Miglieglia is an old village whose heart remained authentic. You will appreciate a walk to Santo Stefano church, dating from the XVth century and protected by the Swiss confederation. When you get there, the fantastic view will give you a peaceful feeling.


Monte Lema

Monte Lema is the top of the mountain located just behind our village. At 1600m height, you can enjoy a wonderful view over Lake Lugano on one side and on Lake Maggiore on the other side with the Alps in the background. Monte Lema is called the balcony of Ticino.

You can walk to reach the top but you can also use the cable railway which leaves out of the village main square.

From the top, various mountain hikes are offered - including one which reach Monte Tamaro following the mountains crests. (5h)

You can then return to Miglieglia by shuttle bus.
