Ina Sorba double-decker “casella”5 meters high of dry stones
Ina Sorba is an area in the countryside above Riva Faraldi with some of the largest “caselle” in the Western Liguria.
This construction, made entirely of dry stones, is structured on two floors, with an internal height of almost 5 meters.
For its grandeur it can defined a “casellùn”: a sort of substitute home used as a shelter for animals downstairs and people upstairs, ensuring a dignified stay for the entire season of growing and harvesting.
We are in fact in an agricultural area far from the villages: returning home during evening wasn’t possible.
