Pietra Ligure owes its name to the imposing limestone spur above which stands the castle, with a thousand-year history, which hosts cultural events, open to the public and freely visitable.
The Old Town has a medieval "Borgo Vecchio" with the typical alleys, arched buttresses, stone paving, colored houses and plays of light and shadows created by the rays of the sun.
The "Borgo Nuovo", which extends the old one, is full of Renaissance palaces, decorated churches, airy squares and here is the Baroque-style Basilica dedicated to San Nicolò di Bari.
Its healthy air and mild climate all year round make this town rich in history and culture a renowned seaside resort.
It is universally recognized as one of the most beautiful and typical places of the Ligurian Riviera and is certainly the ideal place for anyone who wants to spend a pleasant and relaxing holiday.
