Italy Chiesa di Sant'Andrea, Italian Riviera

Chiesa di Sant'Andrea is a beautiful little church near Moltedo in the background of Imperia at the Italian Riviera. It was constructed in 1666 as a reconstruction of a church which stood in the same place before. In 1887 it was damaged by an earthquake and never got repaired afterwards. The ruin still leaves a feeling though on how beautiful this church must have been in this gorgeous place in the mountains.

Photography Tips

There are so many beautiful details like this in the backcountry of Italy, so the best advice is to have an open eye and a tele-lens with you if you want to capture places like this one. An 85mm lens is already a good start to get a good photo from this spot.

Travel Information

This spot is just at the street, which offers this amazing view over the valley and hills towards the little ruin of the church. You can simply park your car for a short time on the street itself since there are usually only a few cars travelling up to Vasia. If you want to get to this street, just follow the signs from Imperia to Vasia.

The best time to travel to this region is probably October since there is nearly no tourism anymore and you can enjoy some of the amazing beaches at the coast near Imperia just for yourself. This is also the time when this region is still warm enough, but not so hot that you can't stay outside.
