La Pigna, Sanremo

3.3
#3 of 7 in Historic Sites in Sanremo
La Pigna refers to the old town of Sanremo along the Italian Riviera. Built in the early Middle Ages, the walled village later expanded into the surrounding hillside. Today, the remaining old town is almost perfectly preserved. A labyrinth of paths and narrow streets weaves through old buildings and monuments, eventually leading to a cathedral perched atop a hill. The views from here are not to be missed. This quaint, historic part of Sanremo contrasts starkly with the busy areas closer to the sea.

  • Throw you in the exploration of these dark and winding streets. It goes up, it's narrow, spent in long passages paved and covered the steep stairs that aren't. A real pleasure to discover this city authentic and alive, without glitz. Make the effort to climb to the garden of the Regina Elena at the top of the Church. You will be rewarded for your efforts.

  • A beautiful authentic and atmospheric part of Sanremo with small streets, idyllic squares and their residents. A great contrast with the right on this old town (Pigna) bordering more mundane Sanremo. Like the square Piazza Dolori with a cosy bar-restaurant. Well worth a visit if you want to take from the hustle and bustle of the resort itself.

  • > Although you little remains of its medieval history, urbanism if only now takes us to the Sanremo defending from the Berber pirates. Every corner is a good photograph.
