“Nello stemma comunale, concesso con Decreto del Presidente della Repubblica, si raffigura, in campo azzurro, una pigna d’oro, che si sovrappone alla lettera M, arabescata” (Descrizione araldica dello stemma)
Nestled like a little jewel between the towns of Pignone and Calice al Cornoviglio, the scattered municipality of Beverino awaits us. It is sunny, despite being dominated by the ruins of an old fortress manor in Bracelli, and crossed by watercourses that flow into the Vara river amidst frogs’ darts and foxholes.
Padivarma acts as a confluence, the other hamlets, all immersed in the usual rustic atmosphere, are Bracelli, Castiglione Vara, Cavanella Vara, Corvara and Beverino.
It stands out thanks also to the multitude of trekking routes that link the valley to the Cinque Terre and the High Route of Ligurian Mountains. Beverino sparkles, and rightfully so, as a small branch of viticulture in Val di Vara: many of the vineyards are destined for the production of “Colli di Luni” DOC (controlled designation of origin) wines.
Places of interest
In Beverino, in the Castello area, the beautiful and pure white annexation of the Proto-Romanesque complexes of Santa Croce and San Cipriano, built on a pre-existing ancient temple and literally merged with the neighbourhoods of the characteristic historic centre, is worth a visit. In the hamlet of Corvara, the 16th century Sanctuary of Madonna del Trezzo and the 14th century Loggia, which was chosen as a resting station for pilgrims and wayfarers.
San Lorenzo martyr, celebrated on August 10th, is the patron saint of Beverino
