About us

The etymology of Lucomagno, the mountain pass linking Ticino to Graubünden, is Lucus magnum, meaning "spacious, large place" but also "large forest". The Centre is located in this vast alpine environment listed in the Federal Inventory of Landscapes and Natural Monuments, at Acquacalda, at an altitude of 1750 metres.

The hotel of the structure, which has been extensively renovated, is run by the company Centro EcoNatura Acquacalda. It enthusiastically and professionally promotes hospitality, while Pro Natura Ticino, as owner of the premises, continues to offer an extensive cultural programme focused on the relationship between man and nature.

Parallel to Pro Natura's cultural programme, the management of the Centre organises animations and activities aimed at sharing knowledge, encouraging exchanges and as an opportunity to spend pleasant moments together. All activities are presented in our agenda.

The natural beauty of this region is manifold and an extensive network of hiking trails, many of which are classified as nature trails, cross it and offer itineraries of varying levels of difficulty. The landscape also offers an extraordinary geological and botanical wealth.

The Centre offers accommodation for 36 people in rooms and two small dormitories (6 and 8 people); a bar-restaurant with a large terrace, banquet hall and conference room. For the more adventurous visitors there is a campsite with 20 places for tents and minibuses and 2 bungalows.

"Healthy, simple and friendly" are the values that the new management proposes at the Centre. The traditional or vegetarian and vegan dishes are made as far as possible from organic products and from the Valle del Sole (Sun Valley, another name for the Blenio Valley). In fact the area offers a wide range of excellent genuine and local products. Our guests will also find a selection of pastries baked at the Centre itself.

Water is the mainstay of life on our beautiful blue planet and its quality is closely linked to our health. The Centre is privileged to have its own source of pure spring water. We ask our guests not to waste it and not to use cosmetics or other environmentally harmful products, but to prefer natural products, also available on request.

The Centre is heated exclusively with wood from local sources: an ecological and sustainable choice.

We look forward to welcoming you to Acquacalda!
