In a quiet valley, this is a place full of faith and lands among lively patronal festivals, food festivals and art events

At the foot of the Ligurian Apennine, in the Leira valley, close to Genoa, there is a town with medieval origins, devoted to faith and with a luxuriant nature. Discover important places of worship, destination for pilgrims such as the ancient and solemn Nostra Signora dell’Acquasanta sanctuary, close to the famous and renowned sulphur water baths, and some churches housing important sacred works. Enjoy moments of meditation and peace and go up to Punta Martin to be won over by the views on the Gulf of Genoa and the valley. This is an impressive place for its historical atmosphere, which attracts visitors with food events, patronal festivals and shows by street artists.
