  • From the beach of Varigotti you can climb with a half hour walk to the tower. Is open, abandoned, replete with scritte some obscene ... a blatant demonstration of carelessness and incivility. Such a pity! From the top, which can be reached through two iron stairs embedded in the walls, you can enjoy a beautiful view over the Bay

  • A refreshing walk on a lattice of trails (attention: that the Bay Saracens has just closed for landslide), groves and Mediterranean to PANORAMIC points on which, at the height of a protected natural area but unfortunately very neglected, stands the ancient Saracen Tower, beset by ruins of different age and different nature. Those interested will have to hurry: these days is the alarm for feared collapse of the structure.

  • What is known, from someone who is not a "regular" from Varigotti, SARACEN TOWER (a "Varigottino" like myself has always called Castle. ...) I think it's actually a "tower" of ANTI-SARACENA sighting ... ... In fact, for centuries the Ligurian coast (Varigotti included) has been object of raids by Saracen pirates, coming from their bases in Provence. The rook/castle itself is nothing spectacular ... but is also poorly-kept (often filled with human waste ...): but there's a cityscape-breath that goes from the Apennines (on the left side who look) to Capo Mele (practically Alassio ...), on the right of look ... and the sea is from ... Sardinia! Beautiful headland covered with olive trees, Varigotti overview with featured Punta Crena and Pier (dedicated to the "real" Varigottino Renato Castellani), a view of the beautiful little church of San Lorenzo with, at the top, the "Lighthouse" = meteorological observatory of Aeronautics. A little trail from .. goats, as is right and beautiful it is. In 15 minutes from the village there you go.

  • Two trails that go up to the Tower, one just east of the tunnel on the highway, narrow and really tired, the other preferred instead to the West of the Gallery from the houses to the South of the highway. Cmq undemanding, climb that many walk in flip flops. You can climb the Tower using iron ladders inside 2: from here you can enjoy an amazing view at 360 degrees on the coast.
