Valle Argentina

Heading inland, the Silver Valley stretches from medieval Taggia (population 13,622; not to be confused with the entirely separate Arma di Taggia) into thickly wooded mountains. Charming villages adorn the hilltops in this area as if they were cake decorations.

Buses from San Remo head as far as Triora (population 425; elevation 776m), which is

33km north of San Remo. This haunting medieval village, the scene of celebrated witch trials and executions in the 16th century, dominates the surrounding valleys and the trip is worth the effort. Gruesome tales of witches being burned alive are portrayed in its Museo Etnografico e della Stregoneria (Museum of Ethnography & Witchcraft; Corso Italia 1; adult/child €2/1; S 2.30-6pm Mon-Fri, 10.30am-noon & 2.30-6pm Sat & Sun Oct-May, 3-7pm Mon-Fri, 10.30am-noon & 3-7pm Sat & Sun Jun, Jul & Sep, 10.30am-noon & 3-7pm Aug).

Information on the valley is available from San Remo's tourist office (p208).
