Via del Mercato

Exploring the old trading route in Centovalli

The “Via del Mercato” is an old mule track once used to reach the trading hub of Locarno. The walk leads through the Parco dei Mulini (mill park), which is full of interesting farming artefacts, and past the characteristic patrician houses in Verdasio. A richly historic trail awaits you that will take you to Intragna, home to Ticino’s tallest bell tower.
