The Old Town on the west bank of the river, is extremely picturesque and almost entirely residential, with cobbled, arcaded courtyards, and tiny sloping lanes leading up to the medieval Porta Bormina at the top of the town, beyond which lie open meadows. Just off a busy roundabout 1 km northwest of the centre is the pilgrimage church of Madonna di Tirano, commemorating an appearance of the Virgin on September 29, 1504. Taste fantastic wine and great food (like e.g. Pizzzoccheri – made of buckwheat flour etc.). (Available Year Round.)
