With its clear crystal sea, mild climate and movida Alassio is the destination suitable for all ages, both for young people ,who are attracted by the evening entertainment as the open air discos and the cocktails served by the sea ,and for those who wish to spend their winters in a quiet relaxing atmosphere. The characteristic historic centre made up of numerous alleys and a main backstreet which is a long cobbled road along the seafront with closely knit old houses and modern shops: in the central confectioner's (pasticceria) one can indulge in the most famous Baci of Alassio made of nuts and chocolate.
Famous for the Muretto, a wall decorated with colourful tiles autographed through the years by famous people who visited this splendid place: it is actually the wall that has given its name to the beauty contest that takes place every summer to elect the most beautiful girl.
The railway station in Liberty syle, the English library and the Anglican church , which today hosts important estimed exhibitions, are all testimony of the international success of Alassio back to the end of the 1800s when it was the favourite destination of British gentry who used to come to spend the winter on the ligurian Occitan coast.
Among the attractions of the wealth of heritage of this town are. the church of St Ambrose which was erected in the second half of the 15th century on the ruins of another church dating back to the 10th century and the Shrine of Madonna della Guardia requested and built by the sailors of Alassio as a chapel to watch over the "Stella Maris" defending the valley below. Several archaeological trails hint to pleasant walks like those that lead to the little churches of Madonna delle Grazie and the 13th century church of Santa Croce.
For those who love the sea not to be missed is Punta Murena, a little corner of paradise among the rocks and "calette." ???
