There are wonderful views of the Pizzo di Vogorno, of the Vogorno artificial lake and of Lake Maggiore.
Of note are the village squares and the portico of the Church of San Gottardo.
One interesting fact is that Mergoscia lies at the exact geometric centre of the Ticino Canton. A number of very interesting excursions depart from the area to the Monti di Lego hut, to Cardada and to Corippo.
