H+ La Palma Hotel & Spa Locarno is located on the lake promenade, just a ten minute amble along the boulevard to Locarno's Piazza Grande and city centre.
Piazza Grande’s leafy passages and cobblestones fit into the natural landscape as seamlessly as the mountains and chestnut trees – as if they too sprung from roots and seeds rather than were built by man. Enjoy the mix and match of Lombard houses, cafes and pastel hues that make up the old town. Be sure to wander down to order a cooling gelato from the afternoon sun or enjoy a romantic dinner by the shore.
Home to the warmest weather in Switzerland, the natural landscape is the real centrepiece of your stay: pastures and peaks, valleys and grottos, waterfalls and meadows unfold around the stunning Lago Maggiore. You will always remember the placid, deep blue waters of the lake reflecting the fluffy clouds of the sky during a sunny afternoon.
If you're seeking scenic views and Alpine heights, a cable car can lead you to Cardada/Cimetta, a mountain range with hiking opportunities and unmissable views. Be sure to ask H+ La Palma Hotel & Spa Locarno to recommend walking paths so you can get the most from this unbeatable location.
We recommend a visit the most popular pilgrimage site in Switzerland: the Madonna del Sasso, where cinnamon-coloured roofs and sepia-faded walls peer from the green ravine and rocky crags. It's said the Virgin Mary appeared on the premises of this Franciscan monastery in 1480.
Be prepared to fall in love with one of the most unique environments in Europe and leave with the image of the dusky sun sinking behind the green mountains stuck in your mind forever.
