13.Chiesetta Di Sant'Ampelio

Bordighera, Liguria 18012, Italy

Created By: Individual


Saint Ampelio was chosen as the patron saint of the city, not only because he chose the Cape as his permanent home, but also because, according to the legend, he planted the first seeds of Date palm that he had brought from his native Egypt. It is therefore thanks to Saint Ampelio that the Ligurian town can claim the title of "Queen of palms".
