A Visit to Castelnuovo Magra, SP, Italy

Castelnuovo Magra is a Ligurian hilltop town easily recognizable from the Magra River Valley below. It has a big castle tower on the north side and a big church tower on the south side. We went up and checked it out.

Castelnuovo Magra is about 15 km inland from Lerici
