FORTINI DELLA FAME

Discover an interesting peace of history of rural Ticino. The Hunger towers were built not only as part of defensive line agains the Austrians but the building them itself gave work to a lot of poor local people for a long time. Therefore the name: Fortini della fame.

The circular trail is about 4 km long and you can see 5 remaining towers. We coudn’t do all the hike because of the pram, but even with a stroller we saw 3 towers. [Half of the trail is on the road and the other part leads through the woods]

 

As you can imagine the towers are on top of the hills, but no worries even my 4 year old climbed up there himself. The surroundings are beautiful. The vineyards, the views and this time of the year the blooming cherries are just magnificent.

As I’ve mentioned before we didn’t see the towers num. 4 and 5 because of the stroller. But we will be back when E. is bit bigger with the carrier.
