    Morcote was voted several times "most beautiful village of Switzerland" - it has some charme I have to admit.

    Thanks to its location between mountain and lake, its village center with its many arcades, its churches and chapels, a park that is like a little paradise, Morcote deserves the title “Pearl of the Ceresio”. It is located on the southern nose of the Arbostora peninsula. Once a fishing village, it soon became a hip artist and celebrity refuge, magnificent buildings such as the Palazzo Paleari with its stucco facade or the Torre del Capitano bear witness to these times. Also known is the "monumental staircase" that leads up around 400 steps to Santa Maria del Sasso - another must for Morcote visitors - from where there is a magnificent view. The adjacent cemetery is also in an enviable location, it is considered an outstanding example of sacred funerary art. Morcote's exotic sight is called "Parco Scherrer". Subtropical vegetation and works of art from distant countries transport visitors to another world.
