Savona

By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Our Editorial team's advice

During the Roman period, the current region of Savona was divided into two towns: Vada Sabatia, which was on a plain and nearer to the sea, and Savo, a fortified market town built on Priamar Hill. Nowadays, a fortress that bears the same name stands on Priamar Hill. It was built in the 16th century by the Genoese, who took control of the city and destroyed the ancient Roman remains. In the Civic Picture Gallery, as well as in the city's cathedral, you can admire works of art from different periods.
