Camogli is a small village located on the west side of the peninsula of Portofino in the province of Genoa, Region of Liguria, northern Italy. It was ever a powerful harbor / seaport in the late middle ages and it was also called the City of a thousand white sails. It now lives mainly from tourism and is known for its colorful houses that line the beach. The house colors once helped the fishermen of Camogli find the way back to their port.
At the old time, this tower was for telling the destination for the boats.
It’s the Dragone Castle.

Camogli’s giant frying pan will be center stage at the Sagre del Pesce Italian festival. Serving up more than three tons of fish on the harbor front, a massive frying pan has been an icon of the fish festival since 1952.
