For travellers in days gone by, Bellinzona was the key to the Alps from the south and the gateway to Italy from the north, and even today, the capitol of Canton Ticino flourishes on its rich medieval heritage. Its austere charm conceals the pulsating life of an important cultural crossroad between the Latin and Teutonic worlds on the ancient, much-travelled Saint Gotthard route. Its nooks and crannies, squares, courtyards and old houses are redolent with history. Three castles from the Middle Ages belong to Bellinzona: Castelgrande, Castello di Montebello and the Castello di Sasso Corbaro.
