I went to Bellinzona with my friend Stefan. We originally went to see the Japan Matsuri Event. However, we ended up spending more time exploring the city, and going to Locarno to eat a Pizza.
Here are some shots of the way there from northern Switzerland to the south. We passed through the alps.
Bellinzona is home to the “Castel Grande”. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It gives this small city a medieval touch. Much of the town wall is still intact.
The interesting thing about Bellinzona is, that there are not one but three castles. I posted a picture of these at the end of this post.
We went up the steep castle tower. The view is worth it!
Here’s us trying to look cool after the climb:
We got to watch skilled Taiko players at the Japan Matsuri. They even played awaodori music!
