THE CHARM OF LERICI, ITS BORGO AND THE NEIGHBORING CHARACTERISTICS TOWNS OF SANTERENZO, FIASCHERINO AND TELLARO.
At the eastern end of the Gulf of Poets you will find the village ofLerici, medieval port contended for a long time between Pisans and Genoese. Even today the village shows its original medieval structure with the characteristic houses that branch out along the alleys. We suggest a visit to the Jewish quarter of the ghetto, to the Castle, built by the Pisans in the 13th century and subsequently enlarged by the Genoese, to the geo-paleontological museum. At the foot of the castle you can relax by walking along the Vassallo promenade.
In addition to the village of Lerici, it is really worth to go even to the delightful towns of Santerenzo and Tellaro. Santerenzo can be easily reached from Lerici on foot, with a comfortable and pleasant walk along the sea.
San Terenzo is a small village at the west / north-west end of Lerici: starting from Lerici center and continuing along the seafront towards Portovenere, once past the seaside resort of Venere Azzurra you will arrive at your destination. Born as a fishing village, it still preserves the connotation of a typical Ligurian fishing village. Originally the town was called Portiolo, an oil port or small port, which later became San Terenzo in honor of a pilgrim coming from Scotland, Terence, who donated material and spiritual gifts as a result of his hospitality, later becoming bishop of Luni.
