Ceriana is a typical mediaeval town built on the site of a Roman settlement called "Castrum Coelianae". It stands on the right bank of the Armea in the hinterland of San Remo. The structure of the town is concentric and it is crossed by a network of small streets. You will find it interesting to stop and look at the architectural details of the buildings, which tell of everyday life in bygone days: the doors and portals, the decorations and friezes, the sixteenth-century shops, the cisterns and stone tanks.
The religious architecture and sacred art in such a limited space surprisingly offer many examples of different periods and styles. For example, there are the four oratories which host the city's confraternities (distinguished by colour: the Reds, the Blues, the Greens and the Blacks). During the Jubilee Year, these veritable social and religious institutions will house an exhibition of ancient furnishings and clothing. The seventeenth-century parish church of Saints Peter and Paul holds a poliptych dating from 1526 by an unknown author; the wooden choir and the organ are by Lorenzo Paoli. The church of the Santo Spirito dates from the twelfth-thirteenth centuries but was completed in the sixteenth century: worth mentioning are its sculpted portals. The church of Sant'Andrea, which may have been built on the site of a former pagan temple, holds a fifteenth-century wooden crucifix. The seventeenth-century Palazzo dei Conti Roverizio has some curious stone Baroque masks on the portico pillars.
Local gastronomic specialities are mainly meat dishes: rabbit, thrush, wild boar, "cima" and meat jelly. The local sweet specialities called "crustoli" are really worth tasting.
The surrounding landscape is dominated by olives and vineyards and, higher up, by chestnuts and conifers. If you take the road leading to the Ghimbegna Pass you will come across the Sanctuary of the Madonna della Villa

San Bartolomeo is 5 kms away from Imperia, between Diano Marina (very good for shopping!) and the medioeval village of Cervo. The goulfe is very charming with its sea, the flowers, pines and palms both near the seaside then on the hills behind. At few kms you can also visit Alassio or San Remo (Italian music festival and casino), while Genoa, with its famous aquarium, is at 1 hour drive from there, such as Montecarlo and Cote d'Azur on the opposite side. You can also visit Dolceacqua or Triora (the village of the witches!!!), Toirano caves and the water park Le Caravelle (lots of fun for children and parents!). Unuseful to say that in the summer your favourite activities could be sleeping/reading or playing on the beach and swimming or snorkeling in blue water, but we do suggest to visit the hills behind with their history and the Mediterranean tastes and smells. Our home is close to the beach (100 mts) and, even if you can find everything you need for your daily supply (foodstore, take-away, newspaper, travel agency and so on...) in few meters, it is in a quite area. Right in front of the house there is the bus stop which takes you along the "Riviera" or to the train station. Most of the beaches are free and equipped with showers, but there are also some for fee, as you prefer. Near the beach there is a wonderful and relaxing promenade closed to car traffic, perfect for children and family, where you can find cafes, fine restaurants, shops or souvenirs
