WHAT TO SEE / WHAT TO DO:
In Pietra Ligure nothing is missing. A visit to its beautiful historic center allows you to appreciate all the artistic beauties present. In the streets of the center there are splendid medieval and eighteenth-century buildings. The most important is Palazzo Leale-Franchelli, with beautiful frescoed rooms and a rich library. The historic center of Pietra Ligure is divided into Borgo Vecchio and Borgo Nuovo. The Borgo Vecchio is of medieval origin with its typical narrow alleys, the tall and colorful houses, the paved pavement typical of Liguria. The Borgo Nuovo is instead of Renaissance style. Behind the historic center you can admire the beautiful and imposing castle, which is the symbol of the town of Pietra Ligure. The locality was once known as "La Pietra", due to the large limestone rock above which the Roman castro was built, the original nucleus of the future castle. The castle is part of the tour of the Castles of the Riviera delle Palme and is a building with almost two millennia of history. Alternatively, you can opt for splendid walks by the sea under the palm trees. There are so many possibilities for the visitor that make Pietra a truly welcoming seaside resort suitable for everyone.
