Sentiero Verzasca (SvizzeraMobile 74)

But the valley has more to offer than merely an idyll. Observant hikers on the carefully-made mountain trail from Corippo to Mergoscia, will notice that a few decades ago, life in this valley was anything but idyllic. The unkempt alps on tiny terraces are evidence of the tough struggle for survival that ruled here a century ago. Thus this part of the stage is just as worthy of being under a conservation order as the mountain village of Corippo and also Mergoscia, which has become a target for holiday homes in recent years.
