Albenga is the largest historical center of the Western Liguria, and still preserves its aspect of medieval town: walking through the streets of the town center, which follows the plant of the original Roman settlement, one can admire buildings that represent fifteen centuries of history: a special relevance is given to the building of the XVI century that houses the Roman naval museum, the V century baptistery with an immersion baptismal font and towers from the XII century, for which Albenga is called “The city of hundred towers”.
From the beach the Gallinara Island is clearly visible, a natural reserve famous for its “tortoise” shape and its jagged coastline.
