THE BEFANA DESCENDS DIRECTLY
FROM THE DORIA CASTLE
We thank the Municipal Administration, the Liguria Region, the White Cross of Porto Venere, the Sport Union of Porto Venere,
the Mountain Rescue for the effective collaboration to the success of the event Befana 2023.
Special thanks to the speakers: Lesley Victoria Siniscalchi and Giovanni Dotti.
The town of Porto Venere rises at the southern end of a peninsula, which, detaching itself from the indented coast line of the Ligurian coast of Levante, forms the western bank of the Gulf of La Spezia, also called"Gulf of Poets".
At the end of this peninsula there are three small islands: Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto.
The picturesque seaside village is located in one of the breasts of the west coast of the Gulf of La Spezia.
Coming from Porto Venere, the first of these breasts is called Cala dell'oliva, it follows another that takes its name from a monastery of Olivetan monks,
the sanctuary of Our Lady of Grace.
The village is situated in an inlet on the western side of the Gulf of La Spezia, at the base of the mountain Castellana.
Fezzano is the first hamlet of the municipality of Porto Venere that meets on the only road that runs along the coast.
Located in front of the village of Porto Venere,
from which it is separated by a narrow stretch of sea called Le Bocche, is part of an archipelago also constituted by the islands of Tino and Tinetto.
