Piazza Grande

The signature ‘pebbles’ of Locarno’s Piazza Grande will charm you, as will the notable architecture of the adjacent buildings.

Stroll along the city’s historic square and enjoy the arcade-style shopping, restaurants, and cafés. Each Thursday the square transforms into an open-air market with fresh produce, and artisanal and regional products. From late November to January, the square hosts the famous Locarno on Ice with red-carpeted walkways, igloo bars, and a full schedule of skating events.
