Old Bussana (Bussana Vecchia), Sanremo

3.9
#1 of 9 in Historic Sites in Sanremo
A former ghost town, Old Bussana (Bussana Vecchia) has hosted an artist community since the early 1960s. The 1887 earthquake that caused the abandonment was the first recorded by a true seismograph. The hippies who moved in 70 years later have been served ineffective eviction orders on more than one occasion. The list of current artists names more than 20. Plan your route to arrival carefully as it can be difficult to find. If you don’t have a car, be aware of the 3 km (1.9 mi) uphill hike. You may find that here there is little distinction between a for-pay restaurant and an invitation to dine in someone’s home, which perhaps has a donation box hanging on the door.

  • Incredible atmosphere is quiet, as no one when I visited... Village more or less rebuilt after an earthquake by artists and marginal in stones, pebbles. .. Place surprising to see with a beautiful view over the Valley...

  • Thirty years ago the visiting every Christmas for many years, animated by people, animals and small shops opened in rooms so to speak. This year we returned to nostalgia but already is the first small shop with jewellery accessories no longer exists, and the room is for sale. Perhaps artists also have a lodging in the country because we got around just two cats and a very kind gentleman who commissioned a miniature railway on three floors of the House. Everything has remained as we remembered, indeed somewhat less. On the other hand several flowers they made their visit, were the only thing we have photographed.

  • If it is fine, so maybe it will be worth a detour... However the Church of the new town of Bussana, she is beautiful. Monumental courtyard facing the Bay, expressive statues, splendid pediment are the image of rich ornament inside. To do.
