Located on the water the castle built by the Doria family in the 12th century, dominates the first
impression of Isolabona. The Nervia divides the village in two: "Terra" on the one side and "Borgo"
on the other side. Both parts are connected to each other by a medieval bridge.
The painter Calude Monet lived and worked in this region for a couple of years. Paintings of his hand showing the bridge of Dolceacqua can be seen in Paris.
There are many shops and galleries in the smaal and winding roads of Dolceacqua. Beyond the castle a trail leads into the mountains.
The excellent Rossese di Dolceacqua wine belongs to the culinary traditions of Dolceacqua.
