A lapse of time at the Monte GOZZI

Gozzi

 

Just imagining the fierce struggles that went on up there, as once upon a time there was a feudal castle implanted right on the top (9th-14th centuries). Fierce battles were fought between the Lords of the Cinachesi and the Lords of the Gozzi, along with parts of the Genoese community. In order to break the resistance, it was completely destroyed by the Genoese Office of St. George (belonging to the Rep. of Genoa).

Today, this is a popular walk up to the Gozzi rock (708m) and can be a family outing too, offering an exceptional view of valleys and gulfs.
