Piazza Garibaldi, Finalborgo, Italy, 2015

This is central city square and few significant buildings like Palazzo Celesia and Palazzo del Municipio are articulating this busy place. Buildings are mostly from 17 and 18 century. There is also Triumphal Arc on the entrance to Via Torcely dedicated to Augusti [Kings] di Savoia, Carlo Emanuelle III, Vittorio Emanuele I and Vittorio Emanuele II built, according to the chiseled in sign, in 1746. With few restaurants and few gelato places located here it is a perfect people watching place and what a place it is. I can imagine that during the tourist season there is much more to see, but even in late September, when we visited Finalborgo, there was enough exciting sights.

Exploring details around the city is quite a task, they are so numerous. Check our photos bellow or go to the gallery on our photoblog.

One interesting observation, that applies to the whole area of Finale Ligure, is that most of the ornaments on the buildings, including on the buildings on this square, are actually painted. They just look as being three dimensional.

Two last photos bellow are taken in the third significant square in the city, Piazza Tribunale, serving as a market on certain days.
