What to visit in Sanremo
In Sanremo there are so many things to see, here history has left many testimonies of a glorious and sometimes complex past.
The various art nouveau buildings testify this, including Borea d’Olmo Palace , between Corso Matteotti and via Cavour, a curious mix between Mannerism and Baroque.
Another testimony of the Belle Epoque is the Municipal Casino , designed by Eugenio Ferret in 1904 with large halls. The feature dates back to the same period Russian orthodox church in corso nuvoloni, with its unmistakable domes, erected at the behest of Tsarina Maria Alexandrovna.
But also Sanremo like the other cities in Western Liguria retains the charm of the Middle Ages in the district called “La Pigna” , historical center of the city.
Here the houses cling to the hill in a concentric ring layout, divided into a maze of alleys, stairways, arches and covered passages with which the houses often support each other.
Here there are very important monuments all close to the central Piazza San Siro: the San Siro Cathedral , the Baptistery, the oratory of the Immaculate Conception and the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the coast.
From the famous empress walk , named in honor of Tsarina Maria Alexandrovna, sea walks begin. Through the Vittorio Emanuele II promenade and the promenade of the Nations, streets divided by flower beds and flanked by large green Old Port.
At the end of Corso Trento and Trieste after the gardens of Villa Ormond is situated Villa Nobel , now home to cultural institutions, where the famous Swedish scientist lived and died in 1896.
