Castel San Giovanni

Castel San Giovanni was built by the Spanish in the 17th century and is characterised by impressive pincer walls: from its terraces there is a wonderful view of Finalborgo, the surrounding valleys and the sea. It fits perfectly into the hillside above the town and it can be reached with a five-minute walk along the ancient Beretta road.

Castel San Giovanni rises along the ridge that dominated the town of Finalborgo, between the Pora and Aquila valleys. It was built in the first forty years of the 1600s around a pentagonal medieval tower. Following the Lombard engineer Francesco Prestinos project the complex is part of the Spanish fortifications built to defend the Finale marquisate and were constructed during the Spanish dominion on the territory.

 

The fortress belongs to the Ligurian museum complex and is managed by the historic centre of Finale that organises the openings and the visits.

Forte San Giovanni is a seat for events and exhibitions. It has free entry and it is possible to have guided tours on specific occasions and on request.
