Via del Sale – Via Marenga

Connection between the sea and the northern lands

By the name of Via del Sale we often mean the military road built in the thirties as a link between the military installations of the Vallo Alpino di Ponente.
However, in more remote times, goods and salt followed paths and mule tracks near the ridges, such as the Via Marenga, already mentioned in 1207 in two acts that regulated relations between the communities of Cosio, Montegrosso, Mendatica and Tenda.
This road was also the boundary line between Tenda, the territory of the Duke of Savoy, and the Genoese captaincy of Pieve.
