Morcote ©
Morcote is a municipality in the Swiss canton of Ticino situated about 10 kilometres from Lugano in the district of Lugano on the shore of Lake Lugano.With its characteristic small alleys, the arcades of old Patrician homes, valuable architectural monuments and its natural beauty, the lakefront position, Morcote is considered "the Pearl of Ceresio".HistoryMorcote is first mentioned historically in 926 as Murcau, which comes from the Latin Morae caput, meaning head of the hill. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Morcote: Centro Breggia (in Balerna), Monte Generoso (in Capolago) and Morbio Inferiore (Cappella di Santa Teresa di Lisieux, Santa Maria dei Miracoli, &more). There's lots more to do: make a trip to Swissminiatur, browse the different shops at Fox Town Factory Stores, see the interesting displays at Alprose Schokolade-Museum, and stroll through Monte San Giorgio.
