The Castle of Sasso Corbaro stands elegant 230 meters above Bellinzona, Switzerland towering over the entire city. This location makes Sasso Corbaro a fantastic vantage point with magnificent views taking in the Riviera valley and the Pizzo di Claro to the north and Lago Maggiore to the South.A typical Sforza castle, because it is very geometrical in shape. It is in the square courtyard surrounded by high walls which are 4.70 meters thick. In the South there is the lookout tower. Together with the castles of Castelgrande and Montebello, it was included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites which constitutes the main attraction of the capital of the Canton of Ticino.
