Dolceacqua (IM) - Italy

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Dolceacqua is one of the medieval villages of the Nervia valley and it's placed along the river of the same name. The first document about Dolceacqua dates back to 1151; actually it was just in the XIIth century that the Counts of Ventimiglia built the first core of the castle on the top of the rocky spur that dominates strategically both the first bottleneck and the valley fork towards Rocchetta Nervina and the Roya valley on one side, and the middle and upper Nervia valley on the other, controlling all access. The castle was bought in 1270 by Oberto Doria, the Captain of the Genoese, the winner of the Pisaniat Meloria.
