We discover another delightful village on the Imperia Balcony Road: Costarainera.
A small town in the province of Imperia that, thanks to a careful policy aimed at the recovery and preservation of historical beauty, maintains a timeless charm, providing striking views and wonderful panoramas of the sea.
Costarainera is well known by sports enthusiasts for the beautiful hiking and MTB trails that you can find both on turismovalledelsanlorenzo.com and sanremooutdoor.it
From Costarainera, for example, starts the famous trek the Ring of Villages, a trail that crosses the entire San Lorenzo Valley: https://turismovallesanlorenzo.com/natura/sentieri/anello-di-costarainera/

Not to be missed in Costarainera, just a few steps from the sea, is the “Giacomo Filippo Novaro” Wellness Park. Once Novaro was the park of the former Novaro and Barellai hospitals, today it is a fascinating place, close to the sea and surrounded by greenery among trees, flowers, and Mediterranean scrub plants. Thegreen area of more than five thousand square meters today as in the past remains linked to health, yesterday a place of rest and recuperation for inpatients, today dedicated to mental and physical well-being.
In fact, the park areas are designed not only for children’s recreation, but also to find a place of peace where they can meditate, engage in activities such as yoga, Tai Chi, or care for their bodies thanks to the open-air gym in the northernmost part of the park.

The beautiful garden, divided into thematic areas, includes a play-recreational part where you can learn to recognize medicinal plants, trees and herbs, with awareness of the importance of proper natural nutrition.
