An archeological site of the Iron Age
Surrounded by “caselle”, ancient stone huts typical of the Western Liguria, Monte Follia has a distinctly unique look: its top is made up of a dome surrounded by a flat ring. Those are the remains of a castellarium, or “castellaro”, a prehistoric high-rise settlement made up of walls, stone terraces and huts. The site, already occupied from the Iron Age, had a later use in Augustan Age with the addition of a blacksmith workshop.
