Verezzi, The Saracen Village
The four villages are primarily characterized by their terraced or slightly vaulted roofs. The urban structure is certainly from the early Middle Ages. The walls of the houses, the stairs in front of the entrances, the picturesque arches linking houses, as well as the gutters on the roofs and the particular archways holding up the pergolas, are made of stone. It is here, on the crêuza de mä (path to the sea) that the famous song refers to, by the Italian singer-songwriter Fabrizio De Andrè, where the true colors of Liguria reveal themselves in the form of colorful structures.
Piazza – It is the most famous square, Piazza Sant’Agostino, where the Borgio Verezzi Theatre Festival was founded.
Roccaro – Here you can see the eighteenth-century Chapel of Mary Immaculate with its Baroque-style altar and decorations.
Poggio – A hill that spreads around the tower in two lines that are perpendicular to one another; Crosa is the oldest and most interesting village. It seems to be carved directly into the stone, and there is a system of caves dug onto the hillside, which were previously inhabited during the Palaeolithic age. Here, you can find the town’s most important religious buildings.
Above the village stands the Cross of Saints, that is 3.50 meters high.
Capers – Its cultivation is in progressive development.
