Porlezza is situated on Lake Ceresio (Lake Lugano). The public
lido rises on a lovely shore and it’s close to a children playground
with a mysterious labyrinth. Striking is the church of S. Maurizio,
buried and recovered, and the church of S. Rocco
perched on a spur of rock above the town. The historical centre,
which leads into a beautiful newly renovated square, it’s an ideal
place for shopping and strolling by the lake enjoying a delicious
homemade ice cream.
Porlezza’s lake promenade central jetty offers the possibility to
make boat excursions on Lake Lugano. The town and lake are
within walking distance, about a 10 minutes walk.
