The 'Domestic' Mediterranean: Golfo Paradiso

Along the steep Western coast, from Camogli to the rocky tongue of Punta Chiappa, agricultural and sea cultures live together in a varied and colored environment, marked by a thick network of staircases, among olive groves, little vegetable gardens and citrus groves surrounded by the Mediterranean maquis and scattered with pines, figs, holm oaks, and chestnut trees. Off the small landing of Porto Pidocchio, with its "casetti" full of fishing-nets, one of the last Mediterranean "tonnare" (where tuna are produced) still works from March to September. The most important monument is the Romanesque church of San Nicolò (12th century).
