The benefits of Meridiana Resort - Garlenda

All reservations include:

Zuccarello

Also this town retains the signs of its medieval origin. One of its main characteristics is the main street with the long line of arcades.

 

Zuccarello also was founded in the Middle Ages: in 1998 the village celebrated its 750th birthday with an impressive historical pageant. The very special feature here is the long line of arcades on the main street, originally meant to serve as a covered market place.

High above the village are the ruins of the castle of the del Carretto family, landlords over this valley for centuries. One day in 1403, the beautiful Ilaria, daughter of the Marquis, left this castle to marry the Prince of Lucca, in Tuscany. She was not to see her native village again, because she died in childbirth two years later. But her beauty lives on in marble, since the prince had her image sculptured by Jacopo della Quercia, who made of Ilaria’s gravestone one of the masterpieces of the Renaissance and one of the most cherished jewels in Lucca’s cathedral.
