Amazing historic center of Perinaldo with a lot of italian flair!

At the foot of the Ligurian Alps, the homeland of the astronomer of the Sun King, the village of sundials and natural tastes
From this natural balcony your sight will be ravished by the green and silver of the centuries-old olive groves, and by the strips of brooms, mimosas and vineyards that go down to the sea. Here there is a famous Astronomic Observatory, in honour of Gian Domenico Cassini, who was born precisely at Perinaldo, and where you can make night-time observations together with an astronomer. We are in the village of protected-origin-denomination extra virgin olive oil and the Perinaldo artichoke, a Slow Food Presidium.
The artichoke typical of Perinaldo was imported from Provence in the Napoleonic age; it is without thorns and tender and grows almost as a wild vegetable. It is picked in May and June. On the second Sunday of May there is the “Rassegna gastronomica del carciofo di Perinaldo e dell’olio extravergine di oliva taggiasca” (Gastronomic Festival of the Perinaldo artichoke extra virgin olive oil from Taggia): in the streets of the village a market of fresh produce is held and you can taste the artichoke cooked according to the traditional recipes.

Other specialities of the tradition are “meesana” (stuffed pumpkin flowers, served as a warm appetizer), rabbit Ligurian style, stockfish prepared with protected-origin-denomination oil and “olive taggiasche” (olives from Taggia): all accompanied by a glass of controlled-origin-denomination Rossese di Dolceacqua. The village preserves one of the most charming and best preserved historic areas in the Imperia hinterland. On the façades of the buildings sundials stand out. A must is the San Nicola da Bari parish church, built in 1489, inside which there is a 15th-century wooden crucifix and one of the most beautiful organs in the hinterland of the eastern Riviera, made in 1829.

The hills to the south-west of Apricale are dominated by Perinaldo, an ancient village which stands atop the ridge giving panoramic views over the flora, painting the slopes in a never-ending variety of colours as the seasons come and go, and woods filled with chestnut and pine trees. The far-off outlines of Monte Bignone, Ceppo, Toraggio, Pietravecchia and Grai can be made out on one side; on the other side the eye is drawn towards the sea. Perinaldo looks upwards beyond the horizon towards the blue of the heavens; here the sky is untainted by air and light pollution with some of the clearest views in the area.
These conditions were first appreciated by an illustrious son of the village, Gian Domenico Cassini: Cassini was the first to identify four of the moons of Saturn and divide up the rings of the planet. Adjacent to the observatory are the town hall and church of Sant'Antonio da Padova with its triangular-based sui generis bell tower. Visitors to Apricale should stop off at the Castello Maraldi and the parish church of San Nicolò. Here one can admire the painting of the souls. On the facade of the priest's lodgings, formerly the summer residence and hunting lodge of the Marchesi Doria di Dolceacqua, is an old sundial, built to the specifications of Cassini's grandson.
