Moneglia and its beauties

Moneglia, in the heart of the Ligurian Riviera, between Portofino and Cinque Terre, is one of the most beautiful villages in Italy and since 1990 it has continuously received the European Blue Flag for its crystal-clear waters and the quality of services offered by the beaches. Not coincidentally, according to some, the town's toponym derives from the Latin "monilia", "monile", that means: something precious.

The enchanting bay of Moneglia is delimited by two promontories: Punta Moneglia with its luxuriant Mediterranean vegetation that can only be reached through paths surrounded by greenery, and Punta Rospo with residential villages. The historic center is considerably interesting and one of the main attractions is the Monleone Castle which, according to tradition was built in 1173, when its name appeared in a Genoese edict that ordered the construction of defensive castles, designed to defend the Republic from rivals attacks Malaspina and Saracen pirates.

Moneglia maintains its seafaring spirit intact and is mainly frequented thanks to its coast with large sandy beaches and numerous coves accessible by the sea. There are many paths in the surrounding hills ideal for walking, trekking or mountain biking.
