Salt Cakes ‘Foccace' of all types: smooth, with olives, onions, and tomatoes ...
Camogli is famous for its ‘Foccace’ not alone!
It 'a quaint village overlooking Paradise Gulf and protected from the promontory of Portofino.
High narrow houses in bright colors to each other, separated by narrow streets and climbing on the coast.
Its medieval core, characterized by narrow streets rising from steps and porches, finds its outlet in the marina, still animated by fishing boats. And the fishermen must be the origin of the name: "Casa delle mogli" as a time because the men were always absent at sea.
To see, in particular, the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta, the Castel Dragone, the medieval fortified and still above the sea, the Santuario del Boschetto, about a mile.
Also from San Rocco is a wonderful view of the Gulf.
To note, the Fish Festival, which takes place every year on the feast of the patron saint of fishermen, San Fortunato, on the second Sunday of May.
In the square, in a pan of 4 meters in diameter, with a handle 6 meters (which also serves as the fireplace), 3 tons of fried blue fish in 3000 to provide 30,000 gallons of oil, fish in 750 shifts.
The pan was built in 1953 by fishermen with the promotion to give fish to the tourists and then the success of the event grows every year.
The festival actually begins in a couple of days before, but his most characteristic moment is Sunday morning, with the choreography of the fish arriving in the port and culminates in the afternoon, when the number of visitors reaches its peak. Seeing to believe.
