Exploring Liguria: Taggia

Since I love Ligura and I want to discover each and every corner this beautiful region, few weeks ago I  went for a walk in Taggia.

At the foot of the Argentina Valley, a few kilometers away from Sanremo, Taggia is located just inland from its maritime village: Arma di Taggia.
The first mention of this urban center dates back before Christ.
During the Roman domination it was the military headquarters and its port was of great importance for businesses to the north of Italy. The village was destroyed during the barbarian invasions and in the 12th century joined the Republic of Genoa.
Very interesting here is the walk in the historical center, masterfully guided by signs indicating the location and describing the main monuments.

The views on the various buildings, the view over the valley and towards the sea, squares and fountains that I found along the way, well worth the effort of climbing and climbing in the alleyways and narrow streets.

Very famous here is “The Nativity of Jesus through the streets of the old town” during Advent to Epiphany, and even beyond. 
The old  center is adorned with numerous cribs that are on public display in shop windows, courtyards and small spaces set up along the streets.For information, please contact the parish office.

I ended my visit in the best way: sitting at one table at Osteria Germinal, via Gastaldi 15 / b. 
Typical Ligurian cuisine, good wine and friendly atmosphere. A good place to recharge your batteries and delight yourself.
