Long Description:
EN: The Reformed Church of Ascona is located on the northern outskirts of town, next to the cemetery. The church was founded in 1962, the building is discreetly integrated into the neighborhood, but can be recognized from distance by its square steeple in typical Mediterranean style.

The church is one of three of the parish of Locarno and the surrounding area. The Reformed congregations in Ticino comprises mainly immigrants from the German-speaking parts of Switzerland still today, so also in Ascona services and other community offers are predominantly in German language.

DE: Die reformierte Kirche von Ascona befindet sich am Nordrand der Gemeinde gleich neben dem Friedhof. Die Kirche wurde 1962 gegründet, das Gebäude ist unauffällig in die Nachbarschaft eingegliedert, aber an seinem quadratischen Kirchturm in typisch mediterranem Stil schon von Ferne zu erkennen.

Die Kirche ist eine von dreien der Kirchgemeinde Locarno und Umgebung. Die reformierte Gemeinden im Tessin bestehen auch heute noch vorwiegend aus Zuwanderern aus der deutschsprachigen Schweiz, so sind auch in Ascona die Gottesdienste und andere Angebote überwiegend in deutscher Spprache.
