You pass, successively, next to the remains of the Church and the Abbey of San Martino , now transformed into a private villa. And finally we find ourselves flat. After about fifty meters begins the series of archaeological remains of funeral monuments named with letters of the alphabet in reverse order for those coming from Albenga: G, F, E, D, H, L, C, B, A. The monument G it is located downstream of the path, the others upstream. Alongside all the monuments, explanatory signs have been placed with a reconstruction of the original appearance. Particularly interesting is the monument F which has an interior reconstructed and covered in later periods. After the last monument A, after crossing a small stream, the only perfectly preserved and still visible stretch of Roman road appears. It is 3.5 meters wide, has the typical paving of Roman roads, two sidewalks on either side, and a protective wall upstream.
Those who wish can continue the walk, which offers wonderful views, such as the Russian villa overlooking the sea. Along the way you will come across the 10th century church of Santa Maria dei Monti to then reach the Arch which in the Middle Ages marked the boundary between Albenga and Alassio and finally the Romanesque church of Santa Croce .
On the way back, arrived at monument G, you can take the stairs that descend towards the underlying Vadino district and pay a visit to the church and convent of San Bernardino dei Minori Osservanti . The complex has undergone an incredible series of hardships: after the confiscation in the nineteenth century it was transformed into a barracks, a prison and private homes. After a recent restoration, the Church is open for worship, with interesting frescoes on one nave. The convent, which preserves some remarkable frescoes, has recently been transformed into a school; in the cloister and in the adjacent rooms there is the command of the traffic police.
