Nasino is a little medieval village in the heart of the Pennavaire Valley.
The territory borders the provinces of Imperia and Cuneo and has 240 inhabitants, who live amongst the olive trees and chestnut woods of Mount Galero. This mountain is 1700 meters of altitude, represents the highest peak and overlooks the sea, on the Ligurian side, while on the Piedmontese side it overlooks Garessio. All around are true Alps, where the limestone creates karst caves inhabited by man in prehistoric times and cliffs where the birds of prey live (they say also eagles).
The village is about 62 km from Savona. In the territory (2 km far from the house) there are rock walls for climbers.
In the village of Nasino there are many interesting religious architecture: Sanctuary of the Madonna's Nativity of Curagna, located at 335 mt. above sea level, in a position between steep mountains and fields planted with sage and thyme. Its current structure dates back to the eighteenth century. The parish church, dedicated to the patron saint, St. John the Baptist, dates back to the 16th century, which holds precious frescoes and it's decorated with remarkable marble structures. Several Baroque altars, with the typical "tortiglione" columns, make it unique in the area. There are also chapels dedicated to San Biagio (in the Perati district), Sant'Antonio Abate (in the Vignolo district), and San Sebastiano (in the Vignoletto district). There are also some beautiful civil architectures, as a Roman bridge along the Pennavaire river.
