Our trip through Bellinzona, Switzerland on the way back to Ottobeuren, Germany. This city is famous for three castles that can be viewed from one another. The Castles of Bellinzona are a group of fortifications located around the town of Bellinzona, the capital of the canton of Ticino. Situated on the Alpine foothills, the group is composed of fortified walls and three castles named Castelgrande, Montebello and Sasso Corbaro. Castelgrande is located on a rocky peak overlooking the valley, with a series of walls that protect the old city and connect to Montebello. Sasso Corbaro, the highest of the three castles, is located on an isolated rocky promontory south-east of the other two.
