- The treasures of Brissago - treasure hunt
You should know that many years ago, Brissago was not the quiet and pretty village we know today. Situated between the possessions of the Confederates and the Duchy of Milan, the territory of Brissago was a land of raids by bandits and a landing place for pirates, always fighting to grab the great riches that these lands held in dowry.
One day, however, legend has it that a mischievous little devil stole some coins from a pirate treasure and scattered them all over the village. Amid ancient characters and mysterious creatures, it is now up to you to explore Brissago to find the coins and figure out where the mysterious treasure chest is hidden: let the hunt begin!
To start the search, download the App now from the App Store or Google Play and pick up the paper map at the Bar Incontro in front of the Town Hall (cost CHF 5). Once the hunt is over, each completed map will entitle you to a nice prize.
Distance: 2.5 km
Height difference: 115 m
The treasure hunt is fun and interesting for the whole family. Children in particular (aged 4 and up) will enjoy it and it is an excellent opportunity to explore the interior of the village and the mountain slopes.
Map pick-up times: daily from 08.00-20.00 at the Bar Incontro.
