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. Do some cultural sightseeing at Baptisterium Riva San Vitale and Monte San Giorgio. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Agriloro and Museo Vincenzo Vela. Change things up with these side-trips from Morcote: Monte Generoso (in Capolago), Chiesa Prepositurale dei Santi Pietro e Paolo (in Biasca) and Monte Lema (in Miglieglia). There's lots more to do: admire the natural beauty at Parco Scherrer, examine the collection at Alprose Schokolade-Museum, learn more about the world around you at Fossil Museum of the Monte San Giorgio, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Chiesa dei Santi Fedele e Simone.
