I walked up there on a sunny late-afternoon and enjoyed the view from one of the towers. Entrance cost 5.-, but was worth it considering the view over bellinzona (and further down the valley) and the museum.

The castle is situated overlooking Bellinzona, south to Lake Maggiore and north into the Ticino Alps. There is a small exhibition of Ticino life but the highlight is to scale the ramparts and the highest tower to drink the view!!! Great vistas of the other...More
