Castles and villages in the province of Imperia

The Doria Castle stands over and dominates the village of Dolceacqua, the medieval jewel of the Nervia Valley that has remained impressive despite the passing of centuries. In Taggia the narrow streets and houses huddled together are evident traces of the village’s feudal past that perched on a hill was once defended by a fortress.

The Development Project for natural and cultural resources of Liguria (Axis 4 of Por Fesr 2007-2013) permits the restoration and recovery of the full functionality of these sites. Liguria Heritage guides you through this magnificent testimony of a medieval past in the province of Imperia.
