A nice hike
Do go to the castle. It is a beautful hike and once you visited the castle, go further to the tip of the cliff to where the light house is. The view of the view of the sea is breath taking. I will have a picture of that view shortly.

This was a stronghold of enormous strategic importance.
It watched over the entire Tigullio Gulf and the towns located along its coast, not to mention the transport routes leading over the Eastern Ligurian Apennine Mountains.
Flanked by the nearby fortress and adjacent lookout tower, the stronghold guarded wide stretches of the Upper Tyrrehnian Sea.
This site became a vital stronghold fort the protection of vessels and a strategic lookout within the fortification system defending the Tigullio coastline from covert landings.
It was located in a strategic position for sanitary controls too, which were done to prevent as much as possible plagues and infections.
Now the Castle is a municipal property since 1961 and it is the seat of the offices of the Sea-Park.
Castello Brown - great pieces of art
There are some very nice pieces of art displayed in the castle, like this great woodcarving in the entrance hall.
