Well worth the drive. The views are spectacular. Take a picnic and sunbathing stuff if you visit in summer. There is a lovely cafe at the top with alcohol and deck chairs. We were blown away by the scenery

A great point and a fantastic view on a clear day over Lake lugano and surrounding mountains. Very exposed on a windy day but beautiful the same
