Taggia is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Imperia in the Italian region Liguria, located about 110km southwest of Genoa and about 15km west of Imperia. It has around 13,000 inhabitants.Taggia borders the following municipalities: Badalucco, Castellaro, Ceriana, Dolcedo, Pietrabruna, Riva Ligure, and Sanremo.GeographyThe town is divided into three parts: Taggia proper, the historical centre, in the Valle Argentina; LevĂ , including the industrial area; and Arma, a sea resort.HistoryTombs dating from the 10th-7th centuries BC have been found in the area of Taggia. During the Roman domination it was an important commercial port, known as Costa Balenae. After the fall of the Western Roman Empire, the old centre was damaged by the invasion of Rotharis's Lombards and then by a landslide in 690. The inhabitants moved to a new walled settlement, called Tabia. Despite its defences, in 889 it was sacked and razed to the ground by the SaracensThe rebuilt burgh became in 1153 a fief of the Clavesana family, but soon later it was acquired by the Republic of Genoa. In 1273 it became an autonomous commune, later receiving a podestĂ  named in Genoa, under which it remained until its disappearing in the Napoleonic Wars. Later it was part of the Kingdom of Sardinia (1815) and of the Kingdom of Italy (1861).
