Bergeggi is a characteristic village which is part of the Gulf of the island
Bergeggi is a characteristic village belonging to the Gulf of the island: the etymology of the name shows the Germanic root Berg with the meaning of mountain, rock, rock, evidently referring to the conformation of the homonymous island opposite which looks like a mountain from the sea.
The entire islet, the rocky coast facing it, the sea cave and the Natte cork oak wood have been part of the Bergeggi Regional Nature Reserve since 1985 and of the Bergeggi Island Marine Protected Area since 2007.
The origin of the village, of which we already have news in Roman times, can be attributed to populations of ancient Ligurians. In the area, artifacts dating back to the Neolithic period have also been found.
