In the historical centre, you can find the remains of two watchtowers, erected in the second half of the 16th century to defend against raids by Barbary pirates.

A stroll in the medieval village

Travelling along the narrow alleys, passing pastel hued houses, typical of Ligurian architecture, you will discover historic buildings and spectacular monuments such as the Church of Sant'Antonio Abate, constructed in 1730, in front of which stands the imposing quadrangular Torre Saracena, part of the territory’s defensive system.

Deiva is also popular with climbers for its very interesting 4a/8a crag of Jasper, a rock similar to Finale limestone.

A territory for lovers of the outdoors

Deiva is traversed by numerous pathways, able to lead to an immersion in wild nature overlooking the sea! Be it trekking or by mountain bike or motorbike, no matter your vehicle of choice, you will be able to explore the hinterland thanks to the many itineraries. Are you ready to go?

Fish ravioli are known as “zembi d'arzillo”. The name combines the Arabic term '”zembil”' (baskets of leaves used to transport fish) and “arzillo” (in Genoese, the pungent smell among the rocks on the seashore).

The perfect destination for gourmands

If you love typical Ligurian cuisine, you can find numerous restaurants in Deiva where you can savour tasty dishes, able to satisfy even the most exacting palates! Fish reigns supreme in the local recipes, with specialties such as fish ravioli and Ligurian style fish. Then there are the anchovies, mixed fried seafood and, of course, the typical Ligurian focaccia
