La Pigna refers to the old town of Sanremo along the Italian Riviera. Built in the early Middle Ages, the walled village later expanded into the surrounding hillside. Today, the remaining old town is almost perfectly preserved. A labyrinth of paths and narrow streets weaves through old buildings and monuments, eventually leading to a cathedral perched atop a hill. The views from here are not to be missed. This quaint, historic part of Sanremo contrasts starkly with the busy areas closer to the sea.

  • Interesting twists and turns up through the old city. These walkways are steep. Wear flat shoes with good traction. Watch out for motor bikes going up and down.
