  • After spending a few minutes exploring the beach resort town of Finale Ligure on the Mediterranean, we walked uphill about 20 minutes (taking pictures all the way) into the walled village of Finalborg...  more »
  • I read, very bitter, the review of Mr. Paul, who did not find anything interesting in a medieval village surrounded by walls that had its heyday between 1300 and the second half of 1400. I try to list some of the elements of interest that "probably" have escaped to a visitor rather distracted: the village is rich in fifteenth-century and Renaissance palaces that have been often important interventions in the Spanish period, among them probably wouldn't have been seen: the Town Hall (early Renaissance architecture) from the beautiful portal; Cavassola building palaces and typical decorations of the 17th century with meaningful Gallesio; Palazzo Brunengo in piazza Aycardi with beautiful loggia with double arch; the palazzo del Tribunale subject of countless architectural interventions, located in the square, which was the home of the Del Carretto, Spanish and Genoese Governors; Palazzo Aycardi with forehead full of ornamental motifs (18th century) and palazzo Arnaldi with rococo façade enlivened by stucco. The most important and beautiful monument of the village is the Church of San Biagio of sumptuous and rich Baroque architecture built on the previous medieval church (1372), of which preserves the apse and the unique late Gothic steeple (1463) octagon shaped, leaning slightly, with subtle and elegant double Lancet Windows on each side. The façade remained unfinished rough stone (they ran out of money), while the three-nave interior is striking for its grandeur and richness of the decorations inside the mausoleum of Giovanni Andrea Sforza Del Carretto, the last of the Marquis died in 1604. Also outstanding sculptures, Carrara marble balustrade and pulpit that represents the vision of Ezekiel. Other major Church in Finalborgo is the Santa Caterina enriched by two beautiful Renaissance cloisters realized between ' 400 and ' 500. The theater Aycardi, posted by FAI among Italian monuments to be protected, was the first room of shows built in Liguria in the Napoleonic period. The beauty of the village is given also by alleys that crisscross the whole plant up to trace the two castles that dominate it, castel San Giovanni and Castel Gavone, from which you can enjoy a priceless view of the village and the sea. The tangle of alleys and lanes that run from the village to the castles and entangled in a continuous sliding Hill is unique and is embellished with succulent plants flowers, capers and hydrangeas that in spring are literally flourish throughout this part of the country (which evidently has not been visited) and that alone would make inevitable the visit. The country is full of local shops and taverns/gastronomies Ligurian products and ultimateit (often also of the nearby Piedmont), traffic is only allowed for (little) residents and, in the morning, loading unloading goods; It is actually a genuine Kingdom of peace and quiet, suitable for all ages had, just like yours truly who attends from 47 years as part of my family is originally from du Burgu. Recommend it only to those who have nothing else to do I seem at least risky as it is also one of the best preserved walled medieval towns in Italy.

  • We visited this village in w.e. following the Immaculate. to respond to previous reviews was not a good find! Historical village is quaint, but overgrown, in the theatre of hearings the magnificent National Palace inhabited by people who have no respect for the place where have the privilege of living, rowdiness and hard rock music blaring!. Is by no means closed to traffic, in fact in the morning when we visited us was a coming and going of means among other things rude which did not allow even the passage on foot. It is absolutely full of shops, quite the contrary, and many closed. Car parks nearby are exclusive to the inhabitants and one must make do in finding a parking space in the surrounding areas there is nothing specific. I think it's a waste of time ... I recommend it right if you don't have anything else to do.
