Bastion, Saint Remy

Overview

Built between 1899 and 1902 by fixing the old Spanish ramparts of the Sperone and the Mint, it takes its name from the Baron Saint Remy, the first Piedmontese viceroy who wanted to build it. It consists of two terraces: one large, named after Umberto I, and the other, smaller and higher, dedicated to St Catherine. First, admire it from below, from the lively Piazza Costituzione, then climb the long stairs - or, if you do not have the strength, take the panoramic lift. Come at sunset, when the light fades and dyes the façades of the houses with pastel colours, or on Sunday mornings, for the outdoor market of artistic crafts, painting, photography, collecting. At all times, it is a very scenic place that offers wide views of the Marina and Stampace districts, the port and even the Poetto.
