Symbol of Christmas in Lugano, also this year the big tree majestically decorated will be the background to the photos of Ticinesi as well as tourists, accompanied in the evening by the magical light projections on the buildings of the square.


City Centre
01.12 - 24.12

From Via Nassa to Piazza Dante, as per tradition, many stalls with red roofs will brighten up the days of the Christmas season. In addition, in Piazza Manzoni, the small wooden houses will offer original objects and handicrafts for shopping.

Access to the gastronomic bouvettes only with a green pass.

Ciani Square
01.12 - 06.01.21

This year the Ciani Park will be the setting for an atmospheric Enchanted Wood. A luminous path through trees and flowerbeds accompanies adults and children on a walk to discover many corners of light. A unique experience a few steps from the centre to experience the magic of Christmas in contact with nature.

Riva Albertolli, 14.12.2021-06.01.2022

Also this year the lake of Lugano hosts the floating statues of the Friends of the Underwater Crib. Until 6 January it will be possible to admire the traditional crib figures: Mary, Joseph, the Baby Jesus and the Magi. While during the day they seem to vanish in the water of the lake, in the evening it is possible to capture their beauty thanks to powerful spotlights that illuminate them.
