Portovenere

Portovenere is a charming Italian fishing village located in the Italian Riviera, part of the Ligurian coast. It is situated on the south-western tip of the Ligurian Gulf, just across from the three islands of Palmaria, Tino, and Tinetto. The village is known for its picturesque beauty and its mix of medieval and Renaissance architecture, which earned it a place on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1997.

The village is surrounded by the sea and is filled with colorful houses, terraced gardens, and cobbled streets. The main street is the Via dell’Amore, which leads to a square with a beautiful view of the sea. In the square, visitors can find the Church of St. Peter, the patron saint of Portovenere, which was built in the 12th century.

Portovenere is known for its rich history, which dates back to the 5th century BC when it was a Greek trading port. During the Middle Ages, the village was a strategic port for the Republic of Genoa and was the site of several battles between the Genoese and the Pisans. In the 16th century, the village was fortified by the Genoese and was later used as a base for the British, French, and American navies during World War II.

Today, Portovenere is a popular tourist destination, offering visitors a unique blend of culture, history, and natural beauty. The village is home to many festivals and events, such as the annual Regata di Portovenere, a traditional boat race. It is also a great place to enjoy the local seafood, which is some of the best in Italy.
