Palazzo Borea d'Olmo (Museo Civico)
Considered one of the most important Baroque edifices in Liguria west of Genoa, il Palazzo Borea d'Olmo took on its rich Baroque form during 17th-18th century renovation. The actual structure, though, dates from Mediaeval times. Above the entrance is a 16th century sculpture of the Madonna & Child, while the exaggerated sculptures around the windows (see main photo) date from the 18th century. The palazzo is named after the noble family, Borea d'Olmo, that owned it, but nowadays houses a museum, il Museo Civico di Sanremo, which exhibits archeological finds and historical objects from the city.
