Visiting one of the most amazing castle in Switzerland was a defining moment for me. I love traveling and I’ve always considered Traveling as the only easy way to learn more about our planet, vivid cultures and lifestyles. It enhances our knowledge and changes our perspectives about life and most things.
I have long been fascinated with traveling, adventures and landscape, but what I saw in Switzerland blew me. I thought I knew what beautiful means until I started having fluttery sensation in my stomach ; while we drove pass amazing landscapes and architectural masterpieces.
I couldn’t get over the euphoria of having Mother Nature kissing and caressing my face with with an emotional steering amazing view that was beyond my wildest imagination.
Switzerland for me – was not just beauty in the eyes of the beholder, but beauty that can and will leave everyone speechless.
My amazing experience started with the road trip from Milan to Switzerland.
One of the most defining moment of my exploring was during my visit to The Castle of Montebello.
According to Ticino.ch – Most probably, castle was built by the Rusconi family of Como who kept it for a long period of time ; even during the rule of the Viscontis. The external courtyards with the towers and the “Rivellino” were built by Sforza engineers in the second half of the 15th c.
During Swiss occupation, the castle was called Castello di Svitto but it was renamed Castello di San Martino when Ticino became an independent canton. Towards the end of the 18th c., the castle was acquired by the Ghiringhelli family who ceded it to the Canton in 1903 on the occasion of the first centenary of independence.
The view from the castle is spectacular to say the least and, on a clear day it is possible to see Lake Maggiore in the distance. The castle can be reached on foot from Piazza Collegiata or from the residential area called “Nocca” and by bus taking a road up from Viale Stazione.
I spent over 3 hours exploring the beautiful castle before proceeding into the city for more exploring experience.
