La Pigna, Sanremo

3.4
#3 of 9 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.

  • From the place of the market, many streets in slope and stairs a get lost to reach the sanctuary and beautiful points of views... a good walk from another time...

  • Beautiful ancient village, hard to reach the top but it is rewarded by exceptional view. Many small alleys, very clean with portions of houses with lots of green plants and some seedlings in bloom. several small squares where to stop and catch my breath, some small restaurants, public and private library who very kindly allowed us to see the librarian (no photo as private property)

  • The historical nucleus of the city which climbs on a hill dominated by the sanctuary of the Madonna della Costa, narrow and steep streets of thirteenth-century source, bleachers and arcs joining the ancient buildings, this core was called pine cone for the layered structure, details are medieval alleyways, I'd say this part is the most characteristic.
