  • Fabulous village in the province of Savona. My fiance and I came from Genoa and the trip takes about 1 hour. The road is curvy but not rich you get x x anything annoying and coming by car sj can already notice the country. When we got to the village we parked at the free parking that is free of charge and located right in front of the scenery of the village. X get off in country we followed the sign historic center and visited the beautiful country. The village is very old with two churches and narrow streets. We are amazed by the beauty of the little-known village qst unfortunately, Boi hopped on the castle which was closed. The only flaw in the summer the village is full of bees and flies and c is just a bar and a children's playground and a restaurant. In a now there's fate to visit them all and see scenarios x do so many selfie.

  • This beautiful, village, has a history dating back to the first century. A very curious thing I've read in the document is attached to this village, there is the figure of 1 brigand who was hired by Duke Charles Emmanuel I of Savoy in 1671. His name was Sebastiano Contrary and assaults, was to discourage the passage of people and goods the Genoese from Colle dei Signori and the Crescent. Also participated in the defense of the castle of Castelvecchio of 1672. Despite agreements with the Duke, the popular legends report that he also felt sorry assail caravans of Savoy. From this dual role, appears to have originated the expression "contrary Mary". Cute, No? Apart from legends, is a very pleasant, although it seems a bit empty (we, we saw only 1 bar). If you go to visit the caves of Toirano, be sure to go there.

  • Castelvecchio di Rocca Barbena is a pretty village in the Ligurian hinterland. From Pietra Ligure is approximately 28 km to go the first part and olive trees in the Woods the rest of the way. If you get a cloudy day at the beach or if you want to take a break from the noise of the sea come here! Borgo di pietra tastefully renovated preserving the existing features. It is a pleasure to stroll through the stone away and discover typical corners of this country.
