Early medieval village of Val Roja
The medieval village of Airole has been founded at the meeting point between the ancient mule tracks coming from the Nervia and Bevera valleys.
Its name comes from the Latin word “areola” (farmyard): the land once frequently cultivated in front of the house.
The first document that mentions “Eyrole” is the will of Guido Guerra, count of Ventimiglia, dated 954.
