Morcote and the Scherrer park

A gem at the shores of Lake Lugano

Discover the village of Morcote on Lake Lugano and its enchanting botanical park.

The postbus will take you from Lugano to Morcote (stop "Morcote, Piazza Grande"), where a village full of Mediterranean magic awaits you. This picturesque place on Lake Lugano is one of the most beautiful in Switzerland. Admire the arcades of the old patrician houses, visit the church of Santa Maria del Sasso, the artfully terraced cemetery and the medieval captain's tower. A visit to the Scherrer park is also a must (stop at "Morcote, Parco Scherrer"). This botanical park invites you for a walk through Mediterranean gardens with statues in Renaissance and Baroque style. You will also find examples of oriental vegetation, a Siamese teahouse and an Egyptian temple. The fascinating park was built in the 1930s by Hermann Arthur Scherrer, who wanted to create a magical place inspired by his travels.
