Medieval village of the upper Valle Impero
Borgomaro is a village of medieval origin, located in the middle of Valle del Maro, the upper part of Valle Impero.
With the beginning of the “intensive” (as far as possible, given the steepness of the ground) cultivation of the olive tree, presumably starting from the XIV century, the small village began to grow, becoming a main center of olive oil production.
This is a quick tour around the hidden treasures, usually closed to the public.
