Ceva, an ancient medieval town, is built on the confluence of the Tanaro and Cevetta rivers.
Typical are the porticos in the center of the town, decorated with balconies and vaults.
Walking under these porticos you will arrive to Vittorio Emanuele II square and to the church of the Assumption.
The town is dominated by the steep hill on which the fortified castle once stood; it was used as a prison by the Savoia.
Ceva is famous today for its mushroom fair (September). In June there’s the fair of the Colors and Tastes of the Valley.
Ceva has an ancient Roman origin: Plinius wrote about it as a little village (it would later become more and more important thanks to its strategic position).
Included in Arduino’s march-land, it was later a property of the marquis of Savona, then to his sons who, having moved to Ceva, witnessed its most splendid period.
Later, it was owned by the viscounts of Milan and Carlo Emanuele di Savoia.
In 1773 it was given the title of “città”.
