A unique view on a valley rich in history, among castles and places of worship, ancient splendours of faith and high quality wines

Behind the Gulf of La Spezia, this is an ancient Medieval village: its name Arcula, small fortress, reveals its identity. In Roman times, it was a military station on the Aurelia road, but now it is a picturesque town that boasts important signs of the past such as the solemn pentagonal tower. It is a bastion that overlooks a wonderful landscape, a slope planted with vines. You can live moments of meditation in the ancient sanctuaries, such as the Nostra Signora degli Angeli sanctuary which houses the remains of Saint Crescentia. Sip a delicious Vermentino wine, an excellent product that can be matched with specialties such as the ravioli stuffed with borage and nettle with meat.
