Ceriana is a typical mediaeval town built on the site of a Roman settlement called "Castrum Coelianae". It stands on the right bank of the Armea in the hinterland of San Remo. The structure of the town is concentric and it is crossed by a network of small streets. You will find it interesting to stop and look at the architectural details of the buildings, which tell of everyday life in bygone days: the doors and portals, the decorations and friezes, the sixteenth-century shops, the cisterns and stone tanks.
The religious architecture and sacred art in such a limited space surprisingly offer many examples of different periods and styles. For example, there are the four oratories which host the city's confraternities (distinguished by colour: the Reds, the Blues, the Greens and the Blacks). During the Jubilee Year, these veritable social and religious institutions will house an exhibition of ancient furnishings and clothing. The seventeenth-century parish church of Saints Peter and Paul holds a poliptych dating from 1526 by an unknown author; the wooden choir and the organ are by Lorenzo Paoli. The church of the Santo Spirito dates from the twelfth-thirteenth centuries but was completed in the sixteenth century: worth mentioning are its sculpted portals. The church of Sant'Andrea, which may have been built on the site of a former pagan temple, holds a fifteenth-century wooden crucifix. The seventeenth-century Palazzo dei Conti Roverizio has some curious stone Baroque masks on the portico pillars.
Local gastronomic specialities are mainly meat dishes: rabbit, thrush, wild boar, "cima" and meat jelly. The local sweet specialities called "crustoli" are really worth tasting.
The surrounding landscape is dominated by olives and vineyards and, higher up, by chestnuts and conifers. If you take the road leading to the Ghimbegna Pass you will come across the Sanctuary of the Madonna della Villa
Stunning location but some issues with the description/translation.i.e.no queen bed,no telephone.Bathroom floor flooded by shower.
Overall the location and friendly residents make this a special place!!

Hi ! I'm sorry for the floading, I'll call the plumber to fix it, there might be a problem, I'll sort this out. Regarding the queen bed the orange couch in one of the rooms is a double bed ( large 160 cm when opened ), you only need to open it. Have you seen it open ? Regarding the telephone there is no land line in the house, there is only a mobile phone that can be used, sometimes the clients store it in a drawer, I don't know why you didn't find it.... I'm sorry ! I'm glad that the holiday was nice and that you liked Ceriana and the surroundings. Thank you Daniela
The appartment was in a good shape as it has been renovated recently. It was a really good home base to do trips to San Remo, Nizza etc. Only smaller minus for the bathroom - the floor got flooded every time anyone went to shower, otherwise excellent with the prize we had.

hallo, we fixed everything, the water was only slow in going down...now its quick !! regards
The property is a bit far from the parking area and is quite a steep climb, but it is in a lovely courtyard with very friendly neighbors (who do not speak English). The house is comfortable and has a lovely view of Ceriana.
