In the hub of the authentic medieval village see the “Pantan”, with its ancient families’ coats of arms and fortified portals, we’ll visit the old, characteristic “Botteghe” that still sell the hand-made products of the Argentina Valley. Canestrelli, borage grissini and other sweet or savoury bakery specialties, made with the local extra-virgin olive oil, are an unexpected surprise.

During the guided tour you will also taste “Taggiasca” olives and the extra virgin olive oil produced in the Argentina Valley. 

Meeting point: in front of the main entrance of the Sanremo Casino.
