A small town on the royal road, where flavours tied to the wine-making tradition and to fine cuisine still travel. A pleasure in a scenic spot

A pleasant village about fifteen km from Imperia with pedestrian-only alleyways, noble small palazzos, carved portals, sanctuaries set in the woodlands, olive groves and vineyards of Vermentino and Dolcetto. In the past, caravans of merchants and mules used to travel through here carrying their wares of oil and grain to the coast, from Piedmont to Oneglia. Now, the flavours are still authentic, enhanced by the lively food fairs and by local cuisine that proposes excellent “buridda” (fish stew). And you can also see taste in the art - take a walk outside the town, over the carpets of green and the luxurious vegetation to discover the 18th century sanctuary of the Madonna delle Vigne, a masterpiece of Genoese late baroque, in a truly exciting scenic position.
