Hotel in Borghetto Santo Spirito

Borghetto Santo Spirito

Borghetto is a pleasant seaside resort which also prompts walks in the hills and excursions to other villages in the hinterland. The village, encircled by walls, was founded in 1288 at the behest of Albenga as a defensive outpost against Loano. It took its name from the Santo Spirito hospice founded there in the 12th century, an influential convent from a cultural point of view and the destination of many pilgrimages. A district under Albenga, Borghetto still managed to keep some independence, and in the first half of the 14th century it came under the Republic of Genoa, following its vicissitudes. It became a municipality in 1797.

The historical centre still preserves its original rectangular layout. The old fortified buildings still stand as well the remains of two towers and the west gate, restored in Baroque style, with a niche dedicated to the Madonna della Guardia.

On the Cape of Borghetto, surrounded by a pine grove ,is the magnificent Borelli Castle, built at the end of the 19th century where the convent of Santo Spirito stood, now it is a private property.

A short distance from the sandy beaches and the village centre is the appealing Val Varatella, an ideal place for walks or horse rides, which give an opportunity to visit the splendid caves of nearby Toirano.
