Camerana

Camerana is made by many different little villages, among which Villa, with its medieval tower and other monuments.

The tower, symbol of the town, was built in 1268, and another interesting building is the baroque church of the Annunciation, designed by Francesco Gallo and built in 1759, with its central nave entirely in stone.

The most part of the inhabitants live in the villages near the Bormida river, such as Gabutti and Contrada.

Near the village of San Giovanni Belbo the valley becomes larger, and offers many pleasant walks.

The main happenings are the saint John and the Annunciation fairs in the summer.

History

In a document dating from 967, the town is referred to as a property of the bishopric of Savona.

During time it had many owners, among which the Del Carrettos, who owned almost all the area.

After the Cherasco treaty in 1631 it became property of the Savoia royal family.
