Oneglia — Imperia

Oneglia, Imperia, IM, Italia


A royal decree in 1923 brought the fishing village of Oneglia into the municipality of Imperia along with Porto Maurizio. The modern and industrial side of Imperia, Oneglia stretches out along the coastline with the multi-coloured fishermen’s’ houses typical of the area.

The port of Oneglia, once used for fishing, is now busy with tourism and commerce and the harbour area, centre of summer nightlife, has two docks, the longer is pedestrian and the shorter for commercial use.

Thanks to the preeminence of the House of Savoy, the architecture of the town has a strong Piedmontese influence, especially in Piazza Dante, with its Neoclassical colonnades, which is dominated by the Palazzo del “Cremlino”, previously the town council’s headquarters.

Other important buildings in Oneglia include the Palazzo Doria, birthplace of the Admiral Andrea Doria and the Collegiata di San Giovanni Battista, a late Genovese Baroque church built in 1739.

Villa Grock stands in a residential area on the Cascine hill. The impressive art deco villa, built by the Swiss clown Charles Adrien Wettach, whose stage name was Grock, is today a set for events and films. Its mature garden includes a lake with a central island and pavilion.
