Osiglia Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
An agricultural center on the Po Valley side of the Ligurian Alps, located just upstream of the artificial lake of the same name. It used to belong to the Del Carretto of Savona, then to the marchesi di Monferrato and was finally acquired by Spain. Nothing remains of the marquis’s castle but a few ruins. The parish church of Sant'Antonio is a reconstruction from the baroque period. The surrounding woods contain two spectacular chestnut trees, with a girth of three meters (nearly ten feet) and five meters (sixteen and a half feet) respectively. The blanket of forest that cloaks Osiglia attracts large numbers of summer visitors, who also come for the fishing and the sporting activities on the lake (regional canoeing championships, regattas, etc.).
