Diano Arentino lies in the high part of Diano Valley, at the pass of the Grillarine, a road between Diano Valley and Impero Valley.The Parish Church of Arentino, dedicated to St. Margherita, facing the valley and the sea, appears today as a result of a long series of modifications: noteworthy are the domes of the apsis, covered by slate chips, a rare example of Renaissance architecture in Western Liguria.
Evigno is located on the slopes of Mount Evigno; here, during the past centuries, was celebrated the ceremony of the hay season: the pastures of this mount have always been very rich. In this region we find many “caselle”, dry-stone buildings, used as a shelter by shepherds and farmers, or sometimes as a sheepfold; many of them are in good conditions and can be visited.Coming back towards the seaside, we find Diano Borello, whose Parish Church is to be admired today in its beautiful 15th century style, thanks to the restorations made to reveal the original aspect of its stone columns. In the valley, beside a modern structure upon the Torrent St. Pietro, we see the old bridge of the Madonnetta, with its little and charming votive niche.
