The Roman road from Laigueglia to colla Micheri

Would you like to travel along an ancient medieval road system? On this excursion you will have the opportunity to take a dip in the past and experience ancient emotions.

The Roman road from Laigueglia to colla Micheri

From Laigueglia, go up a part of the asphalted road to the beginning of the mule track that climbs quickly towards the top of the hill, where you reach Colla Micheri, a beautiful and tiny village still inhabited. Famous because Thor Eyerdhal chose it as his residence and bought a large estate that is still owned by his family. The itinerary largely follows the ancient medieval road system. If you plan to descend from Colle Micheri towards the medieval castrum of Andora:
- Castello di Andora (ruins): fortified complex dating back to the 12th century, when the Clavesana family decided to reorganize the defensive system of their territories;
- Church of Saints Giacomo and Filippo: built in the 12th century, with Capo Mele stone as the tower, it is the prototype of Ligurian late Romanesque architecture. During the summer, evocative classical music concerts are held inside (however, it is generally closed, but the interior is bare, the external Romanesque-Gothic structures deserve);
- Tower gate of the Castle: built with the same stone as the Church, it has typical elements of medieval military architecture;
- Paraxo: Clavesana palace, residence of the representative of the Republic of Genoa
