Monte San Giorgio is a wooded mountain of the Lugano Prealps, overlooking Lake Lugano in Switzerland. It lies in the southern part of the canton of Ticino, between the municipalities of Brusino Arsizio, Riva San Vitale and Meride. Monte San Giorgio became a UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 2003, because it "is the single best known record of marine life in the Triassic period, and records important remains of life on land as well." The Italian region west of Poncione d'Arzo was added as an extension to the World Heritage Site in 2010.
In Meride is the Museum of fossils from Monte San Giorgio, designed by the Ticinese architect Mario Botta.
