Centovalli and Pedemonte regional museum

The Centovalli and Pedemonte regional museum gives an interesting presentation of the history, culture and art of this region. The museum building oozes its sense of history and tradition.

The ethnographic collection at the museum includes crafts, tools, everyday items, clothes and furniture from farming families of the region who have lived in the Centovalli and Pedemonte over the centuries.

The highest bell tower in the canton of Ticino

At a height of 65 metres, the Intragna campanile towers over the valley and is therefore the tallest in the whole canton. If you climb the 165 steps you will be richly rewarded with a splendid all-round view of the Centovalli, Terre di Pedemonte and Onsernone Valley.

The Roman bridge

The Roman bridge, originally known as Ponte Nuovo, was built in 1578 by the brothers Giuseppe and Pietro Beretta from Brissago. The stones change colour from amber to bright yellow throughout the course of the day, depending on the position of the sun. The structure is one of the landmarks of the Centovalli.

At 36 metres long and 26 metres high, the elegant bridge rises up above the wild countryside with its clefted rockfaces that go right down to the clear water of the river.

You can reach this fascinating place via an ancient mule path located 500 metres from the village of Intragna.

Intragna–Pila–Costa cableway

The Intragna–Pila–Costa cableway, which is very close to Intragna station, is the ideal starting point for a variety of trips to areas of natural beauty in the Centovalli.

A 160 km-long network of walking trails of varying degrees of difficulty is accessible for hiking enthusiasts from the station at Costa. All you have to do is decide the direction you wish to take and off you go. You can reach Alpe Selna (845 m), Alpe Dröi (1200 m) and Monte Comino (1138 m) from Costa.

The Intragna–Pila–Costa cableway is located 5 minutes on foot from Intragna station.
