TASIS The American School in Switzerland is a private boarding and day school. While the campus is generally open to visitors during the day, calling ahead to the main number +41 91 960 5151 is prudent to be sure the frescoes (mostly exterior) are available to be seen.

About 2km south/southwest of the TASIS campus in the village of Agra is the fresco of St. Thomas (apostle) on the retaining wall below the church of S. Tommaso; the fresco has suffered from water damage from behind the wall, and will eventually be repainted after the wall has been repaired.

Grottoes are the typical, local rustic Ticinese places to eat; some are within walking distance from the campus, others a short (or longer) drive away:

Grotto del Cavicc
Grotto Flora
