The Bosco Sacro di Mergugno Forest Reserve is situated above Brissago, on the slopes of the Ghiridone (2,188 m a.s.l.), a mountain that rises imposingly over Lake Maggiore. At the centre of this reserve, a real gem of the southern Alps, is the mountain laburnum wood. Seeing the mountain laburnum in flower is truly unmissable. It is no coincidence that the wood is nicknamed “golden rain” in the late spring and early summer. However, please note that the beautiful, scented yellow flowers are poisonous.
