Updated: Jul 12, 2021

Monte Verita is a mountain in the canton of Ticino, Switzerland and it is a place of strong significance for the area, Ascona. Its name, Mountain of Truth stems from free-thinkers who came to this mountain in the beginning of the 20th century. Philosophers, artists and thinkers have been drawn to this gorgeous location over the last years.

The tropical paradise you find on the mountain makes it very easy to understand why people seeking a different lifestyle came to this area.

With a modern hotel and restaurant, a rich museum complex and an incredibly unique tea garden, plenty of history and culture can be explored on Monte Verita.
