Alassio

Information on Alassio and Borgo Coscia

The CORALLO Residence is located near the San Francesco Square, where the ancient Borgo Coscia begins.

In the IV Novembre road, where our car entrance is, at the end of the road, on the beach, there is the Torrione, a bastion built to protect people from pirates’ attacks who, between the 1500 and the 1700, tried to land in Alassio.
Going towards the port, you can find the most beautiful of Alassio’ s beaches ( it is on this side that we have the sunset later in the evening ).
Just before you enter the port, on the rigth side, on a rock over the sea, a Chapel ( 1928 ) is built in memory of people died in the sea.
But Alassio is not only sea and beaches, in fact there are many possibilities to spend your time without to be bored. There are many historic-naturalistic walks, the market of antique-trade and collections ( every sunday ), the tour boat around the Gallinara Island, the Whale watching in the Whale Sanctuary or a visit to the Toirano Grotto or to the Genoa Acquarium..
