Villa Negrotto Cambiaso ( Arenzano)
The Villa Negrotto-Cambiaso is today Headquarters of Town Hall. The first building of the villa, according to tradition, dates back to 1255. In the second half of the century XVI Marquis Tobia Pallavicino purchase the ancient castle and made building a villa on the surrounding ground, so the old building became an integral part of the new building. At the end of last century, the Marchesa Sauli Pallavicino decided to renew the villa, following the fashion and taste of time. The building gave the appearance of a medieval castle surrounded by a vast English garden, with wide lawns, sinuous paths creating different environments with kiosks, water games caves, streams and waterfalls. The large park is full of cypresses, canfore pines and cedars of Lebanon. There is also the monumental greenhouse built around the'30s, in glass and wrought iron.
The Church of St. Child of Prague (Arenzano)
In this last century has significantly increased devotion towards the Infant Jesus of Prague, devotion that originated in 1628 when the princess Polissena Lobkowitz of Prague offered as gifts to the Carmelites of the church of Arenzano of Santa Maria della Vittoria a wax statue in the Spanish style of the seventeenth century. Since then the cult of small king spread worldwide and in 1904 was erected in Arenzano the Sanctuary Basilica, which draws many pilgrims from all over the world requesting a pardon. At the Sanctuary, enriched by large majolica sculptures, we arrive climbing steeps with a statue of the Infant Jesus. The colors of marbles ranging from creamy white to red maremma with stained glass, frescoes and valuable sculptures by Angelo Bianchi covering interior walls.
