This is a magical place. We could not believe that such a special place still exists in the Europe of today. Wandering through the village it is not hard to imagine what life must have been like for the villagers prior to the earthquake. Night time without the usual trappings…

Response from Gert:
Appreciate your nice words, Grace. It is exciting to stay at this medieval village and history is never far away. I'm currently doing a historic study of this region, and found that this area was frequently raided by North-African pirates up to middle ofthe 19th century. No wonder that the fishermen built lookout towers along the coast (there's a well-preserved one near Imperia) and built this town high up on the hill near the old castle to make sure their families were safe. With clear skies you can see the part of Corsica (which, together with Liguria, belonged to the kingdom of Genova) where an Italian family was captured by pirates and sold to the bey of Tunis as slaves. After several years they managed to get released but on their journey home their ship was captured again by pirates. This time they were sold on a slave market in Morocco. Their young and pretty daughter (Davia Franceschini) was taken from her parents at the age of thirteen and ended up at the harem of the sultan. She eventually became the sultan's first wife and empress of Morocco!
