Via Ferrata San Salvatore, Lugano

03.06.2014 by Massimo Bognuda

The beautiful via ferrata San Salvatore above Lugano, Canton Ticino, Switzerland, introduced by Mountain Guide Massimo Bognuda.

The beautiful Via Ferrata San Salvatore winds its way up the NW Face of San Salvatore above Lugano and tackles a line to the left of the funicular railway.

Over 250m long and 150m high, this “sporty” via ferrata is considered challenging: it is physically demanding as there are some airy, vertical sections that require brute strength.

The ascent is varied and the outstanding location offers an enviable view over the city of Lugano and its lake. At the end of the Via Ferrata you can choose to descend to Pazzallo down the obvious path or, recommended, ascend to the summit in about 15 minutes and enjoy the view that sweeps across the entire Alps to the Po Valley.
