Naturalistic guided tour along the ancient Roman road (Via Julia Augusta) from Laigueglia to Colla Micheri.
Colla Micheri is a medieval town built on the hill between Laigueglia and Andora, along the ancient Roman Via Julia Augusta. A square built with a particular smooth stone, grey and white, represents clear mystical references. The church of San Sebastiano, famous for its rich colours and a plaque erected in memory of the passage of Pope Pius VII while returning from his French exile.
Colla Micheri became famous thanks to Heyerdal Thor, the famous Norwegian explorer and navigator who died on 18 April 2002. After travelling the world far and wide, he decided to spend his old age here because of the rare beauty of the location, the position and climate. His tomb is located under a sixteenth-century Saracen tower, whose dominant position over the sea and its circular shape suggest it could have possibly be a windmill in the past.
The tour will show you the main plants of the coastal vegetation, in a scenic setting of great beauty. The historical itinerary will present the Roman roads, the old windmill, the village of Colla Micheri, Thor Heyerdahl and Pope Pius VII.
