As the only site to be fortified in Bellinzona, the Castelgrande region has a lot to offer. From late 1st century BC until the 13th century, many additions and glorifications had been made. The name of the castle has also changed overtime. It was known as the Old castle in the 14th and 15th century, Un Castle after 1506 and Saint Micheal’s Castle from 1818. The Castelgrande hill has different terrains. The north is a mild vertical side, the south steep but the mid-land is relatively flat. This terrain has encouraged fortification. The castle displays flawless architecture backed by brilliant design. And as the entire area offers many more sites, try and visit them all while you’re here.
