Piemonte ascona

Port
Piazza Giuseppe Motta, 29
46° 09' 13" N - 008° 46' 07" E

It is famous for its old town, along the lakefront with a Mediterranean flavor with its outdoor cafes and the mild climate.
The historic old town of Ascona, Borgo, spreads around the great Church of San Pietro e Paolo, a columned basilica of the sixteenth century, whose tall bell tower is the symbol of the resort. The branching alleys of the old town converge on the lakefront (pedestrian zone) dotted with outdoor cafes.
The Monte Verità lies behind Ascona. In the early twentieth century, some original thinkers settled there and founded a colony that attracted celebrities from around the world. Currently, the mountain hosts the seminar of the University of Lucerne and Zurich and a museum depicting the history of the alternative settlement and its founders.
