    GENOVESE  CASTLE

    Favorite thing: .
    There is the famous castle (Castello) almost on the top of the hill.

    Of early-genoese origin, was built by the genoese in 1161. The main body of the upper castle, with its monumental gateway that leads to the surrounding ramparts and the grand "ipostila" hall built to a rectangular plan, belong to the period of reconstruction in 1458.

    TORRE  CAPITOLARE AND  THE  CITY  WALLS

    Favorite thing: .
    Look at the ancient city walls and the tower (Torre Capitolare). Its walls are faced with ashlar- work, each dressed stone is slightly blunted. Openings to the first few floors are enriched by mullioned windows and windows with tree lights.

    I came inside the old part of Portovenere via this ancient Roman city gate through the main walls built in 1160 AD.
