Description

<p>Walking through the streets of the historic center, you will notice on the sides of the streets a series of ceramic tiles &ndash; 15 in total &ndash; made by Cogolese ceramists and aimed at highlighting the local history and traditions, inextricably linked to lime production.</p>
<p>Cos&igrave; while some of them depict the various stages of limestone processing, others depict the ancient docks from where boats sailed out to sea. Today that this has &egrave; receded a bit&rsquo;, the various small squares that have sprung up in the meantime have become witnesses to the Cogoleto that once was.</p>
<p>The same goes for the traditional Ligurian small houses with colorful facades, now perfectly integrated into the modern urban agglomeration.</p>
