It is a very narrow strip of land protected by the famous Murazzi from the open sea, a kind of high stone embankment that runs along the only road that runs for each of the 11 km long. The village is best visited on foot, the sensation is like stepping back in time. The pace is slow, people chat amiably sitting in the chairs just outside the door of their colorful houses. Even some old lady braiding bobbins of the “Bolster” to make precious lace. For lunch always appreciated although not too cheap, Celeste.
