Three Castles of Bellinzona:

A weekend dedicated to UNESCO World Heritage Sites

As part of the fourth edition of the World Heritage Days on 8 and 9 June 2019, the World Heritage sites in Switzerland offer special programmes for adults and children.

The three imposing castles of Bellinzona are among the most impressive examples of medieval defensive architecture.
Rebuilt several times over the centuries, they were recently restored: now the three fortresses of Castelgrande, Montebello and Sasso Corbaro are in all their glory. Further details are available on the back of this leaflet and on the website:
