Sarzana

Thanks to its position, Sarzana has always been crossroads of important ways of communication between Liguria, Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna. The town is situated few kilometers away from the sea and the border with Tuscany; the wideness of the roads and the plain territory, indeed, are more typical of Tuscany than of Liguria. The geographic position made Sarzana a land of border, a point of contact between different traditions and histories.

One of the symbols of Sarzana is the military fortification that rises on a nearby hill: the fortress of Sarzanello, dated to 1322. In the historical center, between the wide Piazza Matteotti with the ancient palaces and the imposing Cittadella, there is Via Mazzini, a aprt of the Via Francigena; on the way there are the Church of Sant'Andrea and the Cathedral dell'Assunta.

The most famous hamlet of Sarzana is Marinella di Sarzana, center of bathing establishments. Geographically it belongs to the Apuana Coast and is characterized by a low and sandy long beach, very different from the steep and rocky coast typical of Liguria.
