Easy and ancient historical-naturalistic path, connecting all five hamlets of Framura through forests, vegetable gardens, olive groves, magnificent panoramic sea views and medieval alleys.
We recommend you to use the public transport that connects the train station to Castagnola, to face then the downhill path and enjoy the best views offered from this route.
It begins in Castagnola, the innermost fraction of Framura, from where you embark on a path that first passes through vegetable gardens and orchards, and then the wood, until you reach the torrent Castagnola; the route continues to climb and then becomes plain until it reaches Costa, where you will find the Crêuza (typical Ligurian alley) connecting to the sea.
After visiting this hamlet and have enjoyed the beautiful view, you can keep going downhill until Setta, along a stairway overlooking the sea and passing through orchards and olive groves.
After a tour of the narrow and charming alleyways of this fraction, the track resumes down, from a fascinating square with a splendid belvedere, on a Crêuza to Ravecca.
Beyond the single alleyway of this village you come to the viewpoint of Anzo, which offers a picturesque panorama. Continuing to the left the road leads to the core of this fraction; passing the Church you will come to a small square where the path descends to the sea through a narrow turn between houses. Along this path, past gardens and walls, you will reach finally the railway station and the sea.
