Montignoso

The origin of Montignoso dates back to the Middle Ages; even if it is sure that the Castle has more ancient origins and always has been an essential point of reference because it represented a sure bastion to protect the small towns of the area. Indeed, the most characteristic element of the territory is represented by the Aghinolfi castle, imposing medieval fortification, one of the most ancient Italian casteles, that defended the zone and was never taken. The town of Montignoso is situated on the Gothic Line, so it endured numerous devastations during World War II: some churches of the territory, in fact, are recent reconstructions, because the original churches have been destroyed by the bombings. The tourist vocation of Montignoso is expressed at ots maximum in the marine locality of Cinquale, where you can find a clear sea, equipped beaches, relax and amusement. For those who want to be dipped in the nature, the hamlet of Pasquilio, 800 meters of altitude, offers a magnificent panorama that goes from the mountains to the sea. From here, moreover, many beautiful walking tours start: they pass through forests of chestnut trees and firs, very good if yu are looking for some fresh air during the hottest days of the summer.
