Ancient “termine” between municipalities
The “termini” are boundary stones used both for private land and municipality or state borders, usually made with a large high and narrow stone, and two reinforcing stones, called “testimoni” (witnesses), to stabilise the large stone avoiding damages or unwanted movement. Sometimes boundary stones are more elaborate, like this beautiful term consisting of two well-squared stones stuck in the ground. This term is right on the path, a few hundred meters from the “Colle Termini di Bajardo” pass. The term marked, and still marks, the border between the municipalities of Sanremo and Bajardo.A little further trough the trail that brings to Perinaldo a “termine” made with two “testimoni” is also visible.
