Framura is located in the Eastern Riviera Ligure, at a short distance ti the famous Cinque terre and few kilometres from the wonderful town of Portofino, east of Deiva Marina and west of Bonassola.
A prehistoric “castellaro” (typical settlement of the area), five hamlets dominating a coast of vertical rocks, holm-oaks, pinewoods and vineyards, old marble quarries, cliffs, small pebbly beaches... That's Framura!
The originality of the town consists in its characteristic geographical arrangement: in fact Framura is the collective noun of 5 small hamlets spreading out from the sea to the hinterland and connecteed by a steep staircase in which the Municipality is composed
Starting from the sea we meet Anzo, whose most important sights are a Genoese guardtower of the 15th Century and the neogothic Chaper of Nostra Signora Della Neve. Below Anzo there is the railway station of Framura. Between the station and the panoramic “Punta dei Marmi” (Marbles' Point) you can find the small harbour.
Th second hamlet is Ravecca, whose building show a medieval origin, and from where you can proceed meeting Santi Bernardo and Pasquale Chapel.
The seat of the Municipality of Framura is located in Setta, protected by another Genoese guardtower of the 15th Century as well. In Setta it is possible to admire also the recently restorated San Rocco Chapel.
The hamlet of Costa is the one with the most notable artistic tresures: here you can admire a well preserved Carolingian Tower dating back to the 9th Century and San Martino Parish Church, that preserves a painting of the famous Genoese painter Bernardo Strozzi.
At the end of the visit of Framura you reach Castagnola, where San Lorenzo Parish Church, where a painting representing the Deposition from the Cross by Luca Cambiaso, a famous painter of the 16th Century born in Moneglia and famous for his paintings in the royal palace of Escorial in Madrid, is really worth seeing.
