Welcome to Italy in Photos, where we invite you to discover the hidden gems of Perinaldo: – Perinaldo is a charming village in the province of Imperia, in the Liguria region of Italy. It is situated on a hilltop, about 600 meters above sea level, and offers a stunning view of the sea and the mountains. Perinaldo is rich in history, culture, and nature, and is one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. It was founded in the 11th century on the ruins of an ancient, fortified settlement. It was named after the noble family of Rainaldi, who ruled the area for centuries. The village still preserves its medieval structure, with narrow streets, stone houses, arches, and churches. The most notable buildings are the parish church of San Nicola da Bari, which dates to 1489 and houses a 15th-century wooden crucifix, the church of Sant’Antonio abate, which was built between 1590 and 1600, and the sanctuary of the Visitation, which was erected in the 17th century. Perinaldo is also famous for being the birthplace of several eminent scientists, such as Giovanni Domenico Cassini, a renowned astronomer who worked at the court of Louis XIV of France, and his nephew Giacomo Filippo Maraldi, who was also an astronomer and a cartographer. Another illustrious native of Perinaldo was Giovanni Tommaso Borgonio, a cartographer and an engraver who collaborated with Cassini. Perinaldo proudly bears the nickname of Poggio delle Stelle, or Hill of the Stars, and hosts an astronomical observatory named after Cassini. Perinaldo is a perfect destination for those who love nature, art, and tradition. The village is surrounded by olive groves, vineyards, and woods, and offers many opportunities for hiking, cycling, and horse riding. The local cuisine is based on fresh and genuine products, such as olive oil, wine, cheese, honey, and herbs. Perinaldo also organizes various events throughout the year, such as festivals, concerts, exhibitions, and markets, to celebrate its culture and heritage. Perinaldo is a gem of Liguria, a place where the past and the present blend harmoniously, and where the sky and the earth meet.
