Selve Castanili di Mont Grand

Mountain Information

A round trip of about 2 hours starts from the village and takes you through these chestnut woods of considerable environmental and scenic importance. The area is home to several monumental chestnut trees (centuries-old trees with a circumference of more than 7 m at 1.3 m from the ground), stone buildings and terraced terrain.

Tiglio monumentale

Mountain Information

In the south-west corner of the parvis, next to the entrance, is a huge linden tree that is about 300 years old and whose trunk has a diameter of some 130 cm. The presence of this tree of symbolic importance for the German-speaking world suggests that there was an influx of Germans to this area.

Ex Stazione

Mountain Information

This station, erected in 1907, was the terminus of the electric railway from Bellinzona to Mesocco until it was abandoned in 1972. The interesting station building, in the Art Nouveau style, and the wooden shelter are now in a state of neglect.
