Because of its unique geographical position, Bellinzona was once seen from the south as the “key to the Alps” and from the north as the “key to taly”.Today, its rich historical heritage, left from the Middle Ages, still lives on behind the austere charm of this Lombard town in the foothills of the Alps.
