The Italian Rivera resort San Remo in Liguuia, the “Riviera dei Fiori” (“Coast of the Flowers”), has many fantastic gardens with a huge number of palm trees. There’s a small port, a music festival - hence the chairs outside the Santa Tecla fort. The town seems to have a taste for visually strong sculptures, including some dramatic war memorials. The track bed of the old railway line is now a cycle path since the station (1872) has been moved underground and the lines upgraded to twin track in the tunnel; the new station (2001) has a concrete facade to a 500 m. horizontal tunnel for pedestrian access to the platforms.
