Porto Maurizio is, together with Oneglia, one of the two souls of the city of Imperia. And if to immerse oneself in the more modern part of the city one has to stroll through the narrow streets of Oneglia, those who want to discover the more ancient heart of Imperia will find Porto Maurizio waiting for them. Here, every piece of architecture, every detail and every building recounts the city's past: the caruggi, the creuze almost vertically on the rock, not to mention the spectacular Duomo Basilica di San Maurizio, the largest church in Liguria, where you can admire paintings and sculptures by some of the greatest artists of the 19th century. And here, too, it is the sea that plays the starring role. From the spectacular view of the gulf to the call of life linked to trade, fishing and the whims of the tides, everything is intertwined with the essence of the sea, from the past to the present day, without interruption.
