MySwitzerland planned a hike.
May 30, 2019
Between Balerna, Castel San Pietro, Morbio Inferiore and Morbio Superiore extends over a length of 1.5 kilometers, the park of the Breggia gorges. In this area, you can walk wonderfully and admire geological and historical gems along the way.From each of the four communities you can start your hike through the park of the Breggia gorges. Beautiful hiking trails lead you along the river of the same name, which rushes through the narrow ravines and crashes in beautiful waterfalls of rocks. The geological features of the park make it one of the most important geotopes in Switzerland and the country's first geo-park. Along the river route a natural cross-section was created. The water has uncovered a geological profile that stretches almost continuously from the Jurassic to the Tertiary (over 80 million years).In addition to the geological treasures you will find in the gorge rich flora and fauna, including protected specimens. Historic streets in Castel San Pietro, the Red Church and the castle round off the hike culturally.
