San Fruttuoso di Camogli
San Fruttuoso is a small touristic hamlet, deeply characterised by its ancient recent and contemporary history.
Sheltered in its cove, with the recently restored, facades of its buildings reflecting in the sea, in a mixture of pastel colours and shades of green-blue, varying between emerald and aquamarine, depending on the depth of the sea.
The hamlet was built around the centuries-old Abbey of San Fruttuoso, whose remains are shielded here since the origins, or anyway since the first decennia of 700, in the dark ages, when the monastery was the only existing building.
By the centuries, the hamlet was enriched with mills and fisherman houses, developing into the current aspect; even if there are some restaurants, accommodations, souvenir sellers , and even if its Abbey has been restored, the hamlet maintained its charm of wild isolated place, soaked with salt by the offshore winds and brushed by the breeze that brings the scent of pine and scrubland across the narrow paths.
