I tesori di Brissago - Treasure hunt


Dear visitors,

you should know that many years ago, Brissago was not the quiet and pretty village we know today. Situated between the possessions of the Confederates and the Duchy of Milan, the territory of Brissago was a land of bandit raids and a landing place for pirates, who were always fighting to grab the great riches that these lands held.
One day, however, legend has it that a mischievous little devil stole some coins from a pirate treasure and scattered them throughout the village. Amid ancient characters and mysterious creatures, it's now up to you to explore Brissago to find the coins and figure out where the mysterious treasure chest is hiding: let the hunt begin!

To begin the hunt, download the App now from the App Store or Google Play and pick up the paper map at the Bar Incontro in front of the Town Hall (cost CHF 5.-). Once the hunt is over, each completed map will entitle you to a nice prize.
