Moneglia, a place where art and traditions are deeply rooted in history, was given the name "monilia" (gem) by the Romans.
Here fishing and farming combine to enhance all Ligurian flavours.
Since 1990 Moneglia has been awarded with the European Union blue flag for the quality of its beaches and services, it is the ideal place for a magnificent, relaxing holiday.
(The Blue Flag is a voluntary eco-label awarded to over 3550 beaches and marinas in 41 countries across Europe, South Africa, Morocco,
Tunisia, New Zealand) Villafranca and Monleone castles bear witness to a history that goes back to the Maritime republics.
The chapels with medieval paintings and the Franciscan cloisters are equally important.
Strolling along the narrow streets of the centre in an atmosphere that recalls bygone days, tourists encounter both history and modern comforts.
In the typical Caruggi you find crafts shops, boutiques, bars and restaurants.
A large number of events are organized throughout the year, such as the Olive Oil Fair held yearly on Easter Monday,
which attracts a large number of olive growers and also offers Ligurian handicraft products.
