Camogli

CAMOGLI

Camogli liegt in einem Gebiet mit zahlreichen Attraktionen und Sehenswürdigkeiten. Von der Locanda können Sie sich auf eine eindrucksvolle Wanderung entlang der Küste von Camogli und zur beeindruckenden Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta begeben, von der Sie ihren Weg fortsetzen können bis zur jahrhundertealten Burg Castello della Dragonara, einem alten politischen Zentrum und Schutzplatz gegen feindliche Einfälle.
Das Museo Marinaro in Camogli zeigt eine Sammlung von Objekten aus der großen Seefahrertradition jener Zeit, in der die Bürger Camoglis nahezu ein Drittel der italienischen Handelsflotte besaßen (über 1000 Schiffe). Im Museum können Sie eine Sammlung von Kompassen und Seestücke betrachten. Alle wurden dem Museum von den Familien der Seefahrer gespendet.
Camogli ist berühmt für zumindest zwei Feste: die Sagra del Pesce, bei der eine stählerne Bratpfanne mit 4 Metern Durchmesser eingesetzt wird – ins Guinness Book als größte der Welt aufgenommen – und die Stella Maris, eine spektakuläre Prozession auf dem Meer, beleuchtet von Fackeln und tausenden von Kerzen auf dem Wasser. Die Prozession endet in Punta Chiappa mit einer zauberhaften Messe. Faszinierend.




Locanda I Tre Merli

san fruttuoso

Between Camogli and Portofino, the Abbey of San Fruttuoso of Capodimonte is one of the most beautiful monuments on the Ligurian coast, hidden in a uncontaminated small inlet that can only be accessed on foot or by the small ferryboat that leaves the dock in front of our inn. Near the abbey you will find an ancient church with the Doria Family Tomb. Andrea Doria’s family is the most important of Genoa, and they built the nearby defense tower that goes back to the 16th Century
In the waters in front of it the Christ of the Abyss rests, protector of divers and worshipped with a night mass on August 30. The Abbey of San Fruttuoso is property of FAI, (Fondo Ambiente Italiano - Italian Environment Fund) that is sponsored by I Tre Merli Inn.

portofino Park

The I Tre Merli Inn in Camogli is within the territory of the Portofino Regional Natural Park, a protected oasis that reaches Portofino itself, a magnificent town with colorful houses surrounded by vegetation of olive and cypress trees. A coveted spot and an enchanting place that has won over elite tourism because of its spectacular landscape, refined stores and delicious restaurants. A small paradise to visit!
For trekking lovers, many are the itineraries inside the Natural Park of Portofino; by feet you can reach also the Romanic Church of San Nicolò in Capodimonte, the Monastic basil of S.Fruttuoso, and the Sanctuary of Nostra Signora del Boschetto that are, together with the Church of San Rocco, religious buildings you do not want to miss. The first one, on the path that goes to Punta Chiappa, conserves a marvelous facade in bare stone from the 12th Century; the second collects the ex voto from mariners, and is located where the tradition says the Virgin Mary appeared.

cinque terre

The Cinque Terre is a rugged portion of coast on the Italian Riviera. It is in the Liguria region of Italy, to the west of the city of La Spezia. "The Five Lands" is composed of five villages:
Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore.
The coastline, the five villages, and the surrounding hillsides are all part of the Cinque Terre National Park and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Cinque Terre is noted for its beauty. Over centuries, people have carefully built terraces on the rugged, steep landscape right up to the cliffs that overlook the sea. Part of its charm is the lack of visible "modern" development. Paths, trains and boats connect the villages, and cars cannot reach it from the outside. It is a very popular tourist destination.
