About the village

Set along the Riviera delle Palme, between Finale and Pietra Ligure, Borgio Verezzi is divided between Borgio, located on the sea, and Verezzi, on the hill. 

Among the main places worth visiting include: the parish church of San Pietro at Borgio, built on the ruins of the ancient castle of Burgum Albinganeum in 1789; the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Good Counsel, always at Borgio, within the local cemetery, dating back to the late middle ages. To Verezzi instead we find the Church of Sant'Agostino, near the homonymous square, seat of the annual festival theater, dated back to the XIV century.

The caves of Borgio Verezzi, said "Valdemino", are a classic example of the karstic phenomenon, the structure of which was generated in time by the slow erosion of water through the rock. The cavity was discovered in 1933.

The Theatrical Festival of Borgio Verezzi, founded by Enrico Rembado and Maria Valentinotti Rossi in 1967, was born as a tourist initiatives at local level which took instead, with time, prestige up to flourish in the framework of the festival at national level. The festival takes place always in the summer period in the ancient village of Verezzi, mainly in the months of July/August, putting in scene the classic par excellence (including Goldoni, Shakespeare, Pirandello); it was later decided to propose a theme for use alongside classics also contemporary performances or unusual (cite certainly Hell and Purgatory Dante, set in the old quarries of fossils of verezzina hill, a theatrical route innovative and highly suggestive).

In the agricultural field active is the cultivation of fruit and vegetables, species of olive trees, almond trees, carobs and fruit trees; limited local and is the industrial production in the food sector of olive oil and wine.

To Borgio Verezzi is and was extracted the pink marble of Verezzi, commercially known as stone of Verezzi or stone Lara. It is a natural limestone used for the interiors.
