Piazza Riforma

The real outdoor "living room" in the heart of the city of Lugano.
Thanks to the many bars and cafe's, is the place to go for a coffee or an aperitif.
On this same square there's the "Palazzo Civico", one of the most remarkable buildings built in 1847 in Lugano.


Church of Immacolata

The Church of the Virgin Mary Conception, located in Via Peri, was built in 1860 on an old monastery of the Middle Ages in the order of the "Umiliati".
The building is in Neoclassical style. On the altar a valuable statue of the Virgin Mary (eighteenth century); on the right wall of the choir a painting of the Nativity (XVII century) and left the canvas with the Immaculate (1725).
