Sasso San Gottardo

Sasso San Gottardo – Discover the secret Gotthard fortress!

Once created to be able to defend the country and CLOSELY GUARDED SECRET – today a unique place for excursions into the legendary heart of Switzerland.

In the giant caverns of the former fortress «Sasso da Pigna» emerged, on the mystical Gotthard pass, a unique museum: «SASSO SAN GOTTARDO». The fortress is one of Switzerland's largest and hence probably one of its most impressive underground defense systems.

After being decommissioned in 2001, Sasso San Gottardo was realized by the
Sasso San Gottardo Foundation and opened to the public in summer 2012. In
2015, after just the third full season, over 50,000 visitors discovered the heart of
Switzerland!
