…and travel through time
The beautiful vintage carriages (dating back to 1958) depart from the station in Locarno, from where they follow a romantic and historical track (laid in 1906) that features, among other things, a magnificent viaduct with 11 arches, an 85 m-long tunnel and the arrival station in Orselina, built in the Art Nouveau style.
….to the Sacro Monte of Madonna del Sasso
Visitors travelling up the mountain with the funicular railway will first spot the Sanctuary of Madonna del Sasso on exiting the tunnel on the imposing viaduct. The Sanctuary appears in all its renewed splendour, dominating a rocky spur immersed in a green valley. The silence and nature that envelop the Sanctuary make the place seem almost mystical.
…to the starting place for beautiful scenic footpaths on the hill
From the arrival station in Orselina, visitors can explore the area on numerous beautiful walks.
