Used in the following map:


A short distance from the Church of SS. James and Philip, are the remains of the "Paraxo", the ancient castle of the then headquarters of the Governorate Clavesana of Genoa. In its imposing structure can be recognized the different phases of the construction and expansion, while one of them in? 300, was added to the monumental stone gate tower, visible just below. In front of the castle is also the ancient church of St. Nicholas, early Romanesque structure. All around, scattered among olive trees and terraces, the remains of ancient medieval houses make the atmosphere of this hill so rich in history all its own.
