“Beach in the center of Maccagno, 3 minutes walk from Golfo Gabella. From the beach you can see the Castles of Cannero that are on the other side of the lake on the Piedmont shore. The pebble and grass beach is one of the largest on Lake Maggiore. The beach is equipped with baths and showers and nearby you can find a basketball court, beach volleyball court, skate park and a playground for children. You can spend the whole day and have a picnic just a few steps from the lake under the shade of many plants. In summer there is a kiosk with bar service, pizzeria and restaurant”

“Die Bolle di Magadino, zwischen der Mündung der Verzasca und Magadino, sind eine Landschaft von naturwissenschaftlich anerkanntem Wert (IPP, 1802) Die Bolle di Magadino, eine der neun Auenlandschaften, denen die Schweizerische Akademie der Naturwissenschaften internationale Bedeutung zuerkannte, umfassen das Deltagebiet der Flüsse Ticino und Verzasca am Maggioresee. Die Bolle beherbergen eine besondere, für das Übergangsgebiet zwischen Wasser und Festland eigentümliche Pflanzen- und Tierwelt. Dank der Errichtung von Naturlehrpfaden ist es möglich, die Bolle zu besichtigen, ohne ihre natürlichen Bewohner allzu sehr zu stören oder zu beschädigen. Alle Jahreszeiten eignen sich für einen Besuch der Bolle: wenn Schnee liegt, sieht die Landschaft geradezu märchenhaft aus! ”

“La storia di Villa Giulia è strettamente collegata alle vicende della famiglia Branca. La palazzina fu fatta costruire nel 1847 da Bernardino Branca, l'inventore del Fernet. Divenne poi il Kursaal. E' oggi sede del Centro ricerca Arte Attuale, ospita regolarmente mostre ed esposizioni.Villa Giulia è utilizzata anche per convegni, concerti e manifestazioni culturali mentre il giardino è adibito a parco pubblico.”
