In the hills behind Cipressa, climbing up from San Lorenzo al Mare, is the enchanting village of Lingueglietta.
Characterised by red roofs and wide panoramas: its narrow backstreets run through vaulted passageways and up slopes towards the fortified church of San Pietro. Dating back to the 13th century, this military and religious site became a bastion of defence to protect the population from pirates. The Earls of Lengueglia, who gave the village its name, governed Lingueglietta on behalf of the Republic of Genoa for a good seven centuries.
