Your inner history buff will appreciate Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta and CHIESA BASILICA S. MAURIZIO.

You'll find plenty of places to visit near Bordighera: Museo Frantoio Panizzi (in Badalucco) and Museo Regionale Etnografico e della Stregoneria (in Triora). There's still lots to do: admire the verdant scenery at Valle Argentina, take a stroll through La Pigna, try to win big at San Remo Casino, and see the interesting displays at Museo Bicknell.
