La Pigna, Sanremo
Categories: Neighborhoods, Historic Walking Areas, Tourist Spots
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.

It's still an appealing place, which does make a quantum leap backward for centuries and gives us a vision of how it was a village before the expansion of the population and overbuilding. Full of charm. Leads to imagine what could be people's lives within the home and high narrow carugi, elbow to elbow. A place far more "true" of the streets that surround it: you breathe history.show original
Very narrow roads with a lot of stairs with many opportunities for pictures. Many of the houses are closed or for sale but there are enough places being lived in. At the top there is a very nice Churc... read more »
