Starting point for visiting our beautiful area San Terenzo is a small village in the municipality of Lerici. Located in the Gulf of Poets is ideal for relaxing on the beach or on the rocks in the summer and discover our region in the other seasons thanks to its mild climate.
The castle of San Terenzo stands on a rocky outcrop at the western end of the bay which closes the water in front of the country. It was built by the villagers around 1400: the story goes that it was built as a bastion of defense against pirate raids, and so the cave opening in the rocky promontory on which the castle stands is called "Lair of the Turks."
Villa Marigola the first building built in the second half of the eighteenth century by the Marquis Ollandini as a holiday home, hosted Gabriele D'Annunzio and the dramatist Sem Benelli, who composed his masterpiece "La cena delle mockery" and so I spoke, " Humble ..., serene blissful, wonderful my life in San Terenzo ... ". He was responsible for the name "Gulf of Poets" attributed to the bay including Lerici and San Terenzo, forged in the context of his recollection of the figure of Paolo Mantegazza: "Blessed are you, or poet of science may he rest in peace in the Gulf Poets. Blessed are you, inhabitants of the Gulf, you have found a man who worthily greet the shadows of the great visitors. "
We also stayed D.H. Lawrence, who wrote: "What a wonderful morning with a large, flat, massive blue sea and strange sails away with a deep brightness of pearl, and San Terenzo all shimmering pink on the beach ...... is so beautiful that it almost evil. "
And also in 1933 stayed Virginia Wollf to read up on Mary and Percy Shelley.
