Anello Sentiero degli Inglesi

The Marquise trail

A scenic circular route, crossing  the properties of Marquise Pallavicino, was designed by architect Cremona in 1825 according to the romantic style of the time with artificial caves, bridges and nymphaeum in ruins, but still visible, one of them just right at the beginning of the path.

Owner of the entire land since 1931, Marquise Matilda Negrotto Cambiaso (the Castle and the Park still have her name today) used to relax crossing this itinerary on her horse-drawn carriage.

To retrace the steps of the Marquises of Arenzano, you can try your hand at this easy circular route.
