Auf den Spuren von Johanna Spyri

Von Suna bis Cavandone, die Entdeckung der Orte des Herzens der Autorin von "Heidi".

Ein Spaziergang zwischen Seen und den Wäldern des Monte Rosso, bei dem Sie malerische Wege und herrlichen Aussichten entdecken, die von der Schweizer Schriftstellerin Johanna Spyri geliebt und beschrieben wurden. Sie können das bezaubernde Dorf Cavandone zu Fuß, wie die kleine Dori, die Protagonistin des Romans «Was soll denn aus ihr werden?» erreichen. Auf dem Weg dorthin sollten Sie sich nicht die Gelegenheit entgehen lassen, die Pracht des Borromäischen Golfs zu bewundern, wie sie sich vom Aussichtspunkt der charakteristischen kleinen Kirche von Buon Rimedio zeigt.

 

Notes

Wanderung Suna - Cavandone 

Die Wanderung beginnt bei der S. Lucia Kirche, führt durch Sunas Altstadt auf den historischen Verbindungsweg zwischen dem Dorf Cavandone und den Dörfern am See. Der Weg bietet ein wunderschönes Panorama und führt am Torraccia, Hausturm aus Bruchstein, vorbei. Seine Sichtverbindung machte ihn zu einem strategisch wichtigen Punkt im Verteidigungssystem zur Übermittlung von Nachrichten zwischen dem See und dem Ossolagebeit, wie Dokumente aus dem 15. Jahrhundert erwähnen. 

Im Wald erreicht man das Oratorio della Madonna del Buon Rimedio, aus dem 17. Jahrh. und die Pfarrkirche, erbaut im 16. Jahrh. und im 18. Jahrh. erweitert, steht im Schatten eines Taxus baccata, der mindestens 500 Jahre alt ist. Interessant ist auch die Gebeinkapelle aus dem 18. Jahrh an der Kirchenseite, mit Fresken und Inschriften zum Thema Tod. Im Innern der Kirche befindet sich ein Holztriptychon aus dem frühen 16. Jahrh. von Sperindio Cagnoli. 

Das mittelalterliche Cavandone am Ziel der Wanderung zeigt charakteristische ländliche Architektur. Seit 2016 gibt es auch einen Gemeinschaftsbackofen.

A network of footpaths and cycle routes connect the various districts of the town, allowing visitors to enjoy the breathtaking views and discover the lush gardens, such as the botanical garden at Villa Taranto. From Verbania you can also take a boat trip to the Borromean Islands with the famous parks and palaces.

Art-lovers, for their part, can visit the Museo del Paesaggio (the Landscape Museum), which houses a collection of artworks from the 19th and 20th centuries as well as a variety of special exhibitions.

Sights

Villa Taranto

Its lovingly tended gardens and parks are a big part of Verbania’s appeal: the gardens of Villa Taranto extend across approx. 16 hectares and feature a rare abundance of around 20,000 plant species from around the world.

Isola Madre

This park, which is among Italy’s oldest botanical gardens, features something like its own micro-climate. This means that it is home to many plants that are usually found only south of the Tropic of Cancer. Non-native bird species are also to be found on this island. The bright plumage of the parrots sparkles between the branches, while peacocks and Chinese pheasants strut across the manicured lawns.

Chiesa di Madonna di Campagna

The Madonna di Campagna church captivates the viewer at the very first glance, thanks to its distinctive appearance. The chapel with its 14th-century fresco, the hand-carved wooden choir and the 17th-century building on the northern side of the church, once home to the seminary, are all well-worth seeing.

Museo del Paesaggio

This museum of art and archaeology features an impressively diverse array of exhibits. A fascinating blend of landscape paintings by local artists, over 8,000 photographs and sculptures, prints of Lago Maggiore, fabrics dating from the 14th century, and relics from Celtic burial sites.

Villa San Remigio

The imposing Villa San Remigio can be considered the most important villa in the entire region. It affords a unique view of Lago Maggiore. 

Weekly market

Every Saturday between 09:00 and 16:00 hours, you can amuse yourself by observing the butchers and fishmongers as they animatedly persuade passers-by to purchase their wares by using their theatrical skills and hurling insults at their neighbouring stall-holders.
