Riva Ligure

The Coast

It is possible to breathe the ancient maritime charm in Riva Ligure, a small village now tourist hub with its coast and marina. Road station of the area called Costa Balenae in Roman times and archaeological area today, Riva Ligure developed during the Middle Ages, as told by the still existing religious buildings.

Destination of frequent Barbarian invasions during the 16th century, the city suffered attacks and a defensive structure was therefore erected for the enemy sighting and the defence of the population and today only a square-based tower remains.
