The Cathedral of Christ the Savior is the most unusual landmark of the city. It was constructed in 1913 in a similar way as classical Russian temples of the 19th century. During this period, representatives of the Russian aristocracy often rested in San Remo. It is they who initiated the construction of the temple. Over a hundred years, the temple has been amazing with its luxurious interior, ancient icons, and decorative elements made of wood and stone.
The oldest religious structure in the city is the San Siro Cathedral, built in the 12th century. The last major reconstruction of the temple took place in the 18th century. During this period Anton Maragliano worked on its interior design. Many of his unique works have survived up to now. Not far from the church, is located an ancient baptistery bearing the name of St. John.

San Remo is known for its legendary Ariston theater, which is considered a tourist attraction of national importance. Its opening took place more than a hundred years ago. A theater stage and a modern cinema occupy the same historical building. For every resident of Italy visiting this cultural center is a matter of honor. In recent years, the theater has become a permanent venue for various cultural events.
Riviera di Ponente In the immediate vicinity of the city is an interesting historical district called Bussana-Vecchia. Until the end of the 19th century, this spot was a fairly large and crowded city, which in 1887 was badly damaged by the earthquake. Several thousand people died, and the survivors were forced to look for a new place to build houses. Over 70 years after the earthquake, this town remained abandoned and then began to attract the attention of free artists from various regions of Italy. They had been restoring the dilapidated houses and turned them into art workshops. Nowadays, Bussana-Vecchia is known under the unofficial name City of Artists. The most beautiful architectural monument is Villa Ormond. It was built in the 19th century and is located on the territory of one of the largest parks in the city. This park is well equipped for recreation. It has many old elements of decoration and ancient trees. Not so long ago, a small Japanese garden was planted there.

Col de Turini

From the series “Most spectacular mountain roads”
Any fencing is almost completely absent. A small border whose height does not exceed 10 cm separates the steep cliffs from automobiles.
