Castelnuovo Magra

Overview

Famous for its 360-degree panorama of the Ligurian coast and the Vara valley, Castelnuovo Magra is a picturesque town dominated by the ruins of the castle of the count-bishops of Luni. Here you can enjoy a pleasant stroll through the typical historic centre, along the sandstone paving of Via Dante, see ancient buildings such as the 18th-century Palazzo Amati-Ingolotti-Cornelio, now the town hall and home to the Regional Wine Cellar of Liguria and Lunigiana (with tasting sessions for visitors), or admire the painting of Calvary by Flemish painter Pieter Brueghel the Younger in the parish church of Santa Maria Maddalena. Another reason to stop here is the food and wine selection. In fact, the town is renowned for the production of Colli di Luni DOC wines and Vermentino in particular. The sweet focaccia with oil, sugar and pine nuts is also good.
