The antique "Albium Ingaunum", as the Romans called it, is located in the homonymous plain at the mouth of the river Centa of the Eastern Ligurian Riviera. The town in the province of Savona, offers a fusion of different styles and building materials such as the stone of Cisano, a dark stone brick with a clear medieval imprint.
It was founded by Ingauni and was an ally of the Carthaginians against Rome during the Second Punic War (third century BC). Conquered by the Romans in 181 b.C., the settlement obtained the Roman citizenship and status of the city council. In the V century A.D. the city was invaded and partially destroyed by the Goths and later rebuilt on the orders of Constanzo, a general of Honorius. At the beginning of the XII century Albenga proclaimed itself a free city and in the XV century it was submitted to the Republic of Genoa, of which, in the following centuries, it suffered the same destiny but also enjoyed the same periods of prosperity.
On the typical Roman Castrum, in the late Middle Ages developed a city with palaces and towers. Today Albenga has a beautifully preserved historic center, for the most part still surrounded by walls.

Shrine of Our Lady of Pontelungo, erected in 1722.
Cathedral of St. Michael, originally early Christian building, later reconstructed in Romanesque style.
The Baptistery, built by Constanzo in the V century A.D.
The Bell tower, the Town Hall and the Tower of City Hall, all edified in brick.
