    The Monti di Lego is ideal for marveling at the beautiful landscape. The view extends from Lake Maggiore over the Magadino plain, the Verzasca valley to the Monte Rosa massif. An ideal place to enjoy this panorama is the Grotto alpine hut Lego. The alpine chalet is open from April to October, built in a typical rural style and offers cold and warm dishes as well as 10 beds.

    The Monti di Lego, which belong to the municipality of Mergoscia, are a natural balcony from which you have a unique and unforgettable view. If you stand on this balcony, you forget for a moment that you are not far from the center of Locarno.
     The Monti di Lego are a perfect getaway to enjoy the mountain scenery and traditions of the region.
    The Monti di Lego are an ideal starting point and end point for hikes. It is possible to use the cable car Orselina-Cardada (accessible by car or the funicular Locarno-Orselina), designed by the architect Mario Botta. This modern cable car takes you to Cardada, from where a hiking trail suitable for the whole family leads to the Monti di Lego.
