Monte Brè (925 m) is a small mountain east of Lugano on the flank of Monte Boglia (1,516 m) with a view of the bay of Lugano and the Pennine Alps and the Bernese Alps. It is considered one of the sunniest points in Switzerland.
The village of Brè (800 m; population 300) lies on the eastern slope of Monte Brè and is connected to Lugano by bus service.
The village shows the typical Ticinese architectural style. The traditional communal washing fountain or "Lavatoio" is still preserved. In the center of the old village is the "Path of Art" with notable artists.
