On the slopes of Monte Generoso, 5 Km from Lake Lugano and at the gates of the campaign, Mendrisio, adorns the district. Mendrisio offers an important politic meeting point that dates from medieval times and its beautiful palaces and buildings in the old town. The s.Marco of arch. Luigi Fontana overlooking Piazza del Ponte, the Church of San Giovanni and the Ex-convento dei Serviti (now Art Museum) contribute to make the Mendrisio region the magnificent “borgo”. Mendrisio in recent years has become an important university, commercial and tourism centre.
