  • An old town's beautiful, interesting and well maintained. It was a nice walk, and it was great to also go under the river Neva.

  • At the entrance to the village, just to the right of the medieval gate that leads to the town, the life-size statue of Ilaria del Carretto greets visitors, as if to remind that Zaman was an important component of the trading system and defensive possessions of the powerful family of the Del Carretto family, who in the West of Liguria were important fiefs (Finale Ligure, Noli, Cisano sul Neva, etc). After the door starts the main road, a few hundred metres it is the only village square where in practice the country itself ends: this is Zam ... But if you look up you can see the noble castle ruins and discover, although with difficulty, the remains of defensive curtains from the Castle descended towards the town, opening itself to receive him and drawing as a triangle with the vertex at the top (coincident coll Castle) and the base down, bounded by the route of the river Neva, which with the depth of her bed protected the town almost enclosing it in a natural moat, hardly surmountable. As soon as you enter the door, guarded by Ilaria, allowing access to the urban perimeter is like time close a portal behind us: the noises you soften: few voices in the distance, a dog barking, and a sense of tranquility that hits and wraps. Streets spotless, flowers everywhere, few locals or tourists waving politely (Zam greet everyone), a cyclist ... a few people chatting or reading the newspaper while sitting in the small bar overlooking the main road. The eye discovers, in two streets parallel to the main one, one on the right and the other on the left, more there is abandoned, old stone houses and narrow winding stairs, but also vases filled with flowers, a restored iron cage doors that imprisons a Minotaur life-size (?), chairs and tables made from barrels, which invite to stop and to communicate with others. Not a paper out of place, not a butt you cigarettes on the ground, it's as if Zam watching over to himself, also taking care of their cleanliness and decorum. At dusk the town looks like a living Nativity: the lanterns spread to every corner give a warm and light in the main square, with the Neva murmuring in the background, people gather to chat, and children play, is there anyone who feels enveloped in a cloud of memories that bring him back gently into their childhood ... The country is dying because off the tourist trail: go for it. ..

  • Beautiful small ancient town sited 20 minutes from Albenga. The small road with the archway with its very few commercial activities, the ancient towers, the medieval bridge which goes over river Neva....  read more »
