Traditionally devoted to excellent olive oil, this town is also a delight to the eyes. Amidst walls that are real works of art and the colours of nature

A delightful country town in the Albenga hinterland. Here the olive rules, giving life to a very fine oil that stars on the table and is celebrated by a traditional food fair where you can also taste the typical fritters. Sit back, relax and sip on a fine Pigato DOC as well. If you love hiking, there are lots of great tracks to head down. Follow the trail that takes you to the old Napoleonic period fort, 800 metres asl and enjoy magnificent views over the valley. There are real outdoor artworks painted on the houses in the town centre, narrating the history and passion of a work passed down through generations.
