Seborga is located in the extreme west of Liguria. A small medieval center, near Bordighera and Sanremo, where just over 300 souls live. But Seborga for many years has also proclaimed itself a "Principality" independent of Italy, complete with a prince, the Council of the Crown, guards and money: all, obviously, not recognized by the Italian State.
Beyond political and monarchical issues, the small village of Seborga is absolutely worth a visit! It can be reached from a road that goes up from Bordighera (motorway exit) among villas, palm trees, gardens, terraced fields with mimosas, brooms and olive trees. Not to be missed: Palazzo dei Monaci and Mint Seborghina, the Parish Church of San Martino and the Museum of ancient musical instruments. Photo: by Davide Papalini - Own work, CC BY-SA 3.0.
Seborga is a hospitable, well-kept village. Its proximity to the extensive pine forests of Monte Nero and Monte Caggio means that you can breathe a healthy air. From its altitude of 500 meters, Seborga offers visitors a wonderful view of the Côte d'Azur. Behind it rise the snow-capped peaks of the Maritime Alps.
For a meal in the Principality we recommend Marcellino's restaurant.
