History

Comologno is the second-to-last village in the Onsernone Valley, a northern side valley of the Centovalli. For centuries the male population of this barren mountain valley, which had no industry and little fertile soil, was forced to emigrate, while the women mainly stayed behind taking care of the farms and children.

In the late 17th century a number of emigrants who had made their fortunes abroad returned home and built grand palazzi which can still be seen in many villages in the Onsernone Valley. In the period around 1700, the Palazzo Gamboni was also built by a rich inhabitant who returned to the valley and used this house as his residence. The original building and its furnishings have largely been preserved. The imposing architecture as well as the interior furnishings are a reminder of French mansions of this period. In 1996, the Palazzo Gamboni was acquired by the Comologno Bürgergemeinde with the idea of turning it into a hotel. The building was then restored with much attention to detail and expanded with a modern annex. In 2001, the Palazzo Gamboni with its five guestrooms was opened. Two rooms with original furnishings are located in the historic building: a genuine museum with beds; three simple contemporary rooms are located in the annex. The painted decorations in the corridors and stairways and the historic lounges with their old wooden floors, paneling and paintings deserve special mention. Breakfast is served in the old kitchen, while the nearby Osteria Al Palazign, part of the hotel, serves other meals. The Albergo Palazzo Gamboni has been a member of Swiss Historic Hotels since 2011.
