The origins of Laigueglia date to roman age, when it was called Aquilia. The town conserve still today, in its squares and its streets, its past as a village of fishermen, sailors and merchants. Among the monuments to visit, the parish church of San Matteo, built between 1754 and 1783, and the "Baluardo" also known as "Bastione di Levante" or "del Cavallo": it is the only foritfication remained, in the 16th century there were three towers to defend the city.

Beyond to the limpid sea and the colourful beaches, in Laigueglia the tourist is attracted also by the several festvals, among which we remember the Sbarco dei Saraceni, usually between the end of July and the first fifteen days of August: it is a historical re-enactment of a fact truly happened, in 1546.
