The Mediterranean town of Varigotti
Varigotti it’s a unique place because of its beautiful sea and landscape. Its foundations sunk into the beach and picturesque features built into the structure of the houses, this 15th-century village lies tucked away behind the headland. Criss-crossed by a web of alleys and tiny thoroughfares, Varigotti is a Mediterranean village whose buildings hold traits of architecture probably lifted from far-away Mediterranean countries. The same traits also recur in inland villages and hamlets.
Houses are simple and were originally made of exposed stonework: only recently have they been plastered and painted in typical pastel colours. Most of the houses in the village are old renovated warehouses and mills.The history of Varigotti lies in the ruins of the castle or castrum built to defend the ancient harbour; in its excellently-preserved tower and in the medieval church of Saint Lorenzo.
