This northern province of the Liguria Region forms the north shore of the Italian Rivera. Savona province was once known as a very important centre of iron and brass working for many centuries.
Today the main industry is tourism, with many thousands of sun-worshipers visiting the local beaches every year. The capital city, Savona, is a port that has been a rival of Genova since the middle-ages. It was, in fact, all but destroyed several times with the harbour blocked by sunken ships. The city was also bombed during world war two and suffered a great deal of damage. However despite all of this, the city is now one of Italy’s largest ports and exports many products to both the UK and the US, including amongst other things, Italian cars. Away from the port the medieval centre still remains. The main focus is on the impressive Priamàr fortress. This vast stronghold overlooks the sea and was built in the 16th century by the Genoese. The fortress was built on the site of an old cathedral that was later used as a prison. Today you will find that it is also home to a number of museums, an art gallery and a hostel.
