MORE INFORMATION – Palazzo Buraggi in Finalmarina
The palace already appears as it is in the 1685 seascape made by Jaques Pétré who was a French spy that drew and painted the Ligurian coast on behalf of Louis XIV.
The tall façades, with an intermediate representative floor with large windows, are divided by tall pilasters that end with Corinthian capitals with grotesque masks that are similar to those that decorate the Arch of Margaret of Spain.
Underneath the portico that once opened onto the beach there is complex painted stucco decoration with the coat of arms of the King of Spain held by two lions that reminds of when Philip V came to stay at the palace in 1702.
The Buraggi family also had another grand house in Finalmarina that is the present location of the Town Hall and a villa in the countryside in Calvisio.
