By cable car to Rasa

A haven of peace

From Domodossola, the Centovalli/Vigezzina railway takes you directly to Verdasio. From there, an exciting ascent by cable car lifts you to the tiny traffic-free village of Rasa at a height of 898 metres above sea level. The pearl of the Centovalli region can only be reached by cable car or by a two-hour walk from Intragna. Rasa is the starting point for a variety of lovely walks. Alternatively, you could sit back and relax in the village’s “grotto” or tavern.
