Albenga and Ilaria’ s path

Between Castelvecchio and Zuccarello there is a path through the Mediterranean scrub  leading to the remains of the Del Carretto’s castle where Ilaria Del Carretto was born and lived before marrying Paolo Guinigi, the ruler of Lucca. Ilaria died in childbirth when she was only 26 and was made immortal by the great sculptor Jacopo della Quercia.
