Corticiasca – Description

Corticiasca  (1067m) is a small village in the canton of Ticino (Switzerland), located between the mountains of Lugano and Bellinzona.

Corticiasca has a small population of about 136 inhabitants (31.12.2007). In 2008, when the villages of Bidogno, Lugaggia, Capriasca and Corticiasca merged, the village became part of the municipality of Capriasca. At the end of the nineteenth century the village was destroyed by a landslide which thankfully only caused material damage. Today, the village has been completely rebuilt with many typical houses.

Corticiasca is well known as a great starting point for different hikes.
