Onsernone (Maggia) and the Verzasca valley:
The Onsernone valley and the Cavegna lake: a wild, deepl, v-shaped valley, running from east to west along the course of the sun, with steep, almost inaccessible flanks, , and sunny villages that are hugging the southern wall half way up on terraced grounds. Far away from urban centres, this valley has preserved its calm and quiet, bathed in an almost magical nature and culture. it spreads into the Val di Campo, Val di Bosco, Val Bavona, Val Lavizzara, and the Val Peccia like a large, knobbly hand with crooked fingers, and crisscrossed by blue streams perfect for bathing and swimming which emanate from the alpine passes and mountain ridges.
The Verzasca Valley:
This valley is wild, romantic and fascinating. It has maintained the typical and ancient character of the southern alpine valleys. The region has been developed for tourism offering many interesting sights and activities in the areas of culture, nature and sports.
