Camogli is located in an area full of attractions and places to visit
From the inn you can go on a suggestive walk along the seashore of Camogli and to the splendid Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta, from where you can go the secular Castle of the Dragonara, old political headquarters and at that times safe haven from enemy incursions.
The Museo Marinaro in Camogli shows a collection of objects belonging to the seafaring tradition, belonging to the period during which Camogli’s people owned nearly one third of Italian mercantile marine (more than 1.000 vessels). Inside you can admire compasses, manuscripts from the 19th Century and paintings of maritime scenes; everything has been donated to the Institute by the families of the sailors.
Camogli is famous for at least two festivities: the Sagra del Pesce, which uses a steel frying pan with a diameter of 4 meters – entered into the Guinness Book as the largest in the world! – and the Stella Maris, a spectacular procession on the sea illuminated by torches and thousands of candles on the water that ends at Punta Chiappa, with an enchanting mass. Suggestive.
