A village reborn
Bajardo is a wonderful example of medieval Ligurian village. It was also well defended from invaders, thanks to its narrow alleys and easily controllable access routes. At the top of the village, the ruins of the ancient church of San Nicolò evoke a tragic event: on February 23, 1887, a strong earthquake destroyed many villages of the Western Liguria. In Bajardo, the roof of the church collapsed decimating the population gathered in prayer.
