The town of a thousand white sailing ships, of the fish festival and Stella Maris: one of the most beautiful and best loved sea villages in Liguria

A sea village that arose around the harbour where today tourist boats and fishing-boats berth. In Camogli the protagonist is the sea, always present in any activity and event. You will be spellbound by the beauty of the façades painted with pastel colours; these buildings close off the sea promenade.
The beaches are equipped and with pebbles, those that are also used for the traditional risseu in black and white on the parvises of the churches: very beautiful is that of the Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta in Camogli.
Dragonara Castle is an old castle on the sea, built on rocks sheer over the sea in the period of the Saracen invasions.
Nearby is the harbour from which steamboats depart for splendid sea trips.

Every year on the second Sunday in May there is the Fish Festival, with frying in Guinness Book of Records frying pans. On the first Sunday in August there is the Stella Maris Feast: in the evening, thousands of small candles are lit and allowed to float on the waves of the sea to pay tribute to the Madonna. Here they prepare anchovies in salt, delicate and exquisite. Between Camogli and Punta Chiappa there is the Camogli tuna fishing station, one of the oldest in Italy, and one of the few still active.
