We had very little time, only visited the 5th century octagonal baptistry but this is the star attraction of the largely medieval town.

Albenga hides wonderful old building among them this one dating back to the first centuries BC . The building is relevant for its shape its windows and its mosaics in the inner part. Very interesting also the visit to the museum

Battistero is from second century, and even a museum deserve a visit. Near Baptistery there is a old tower, the view on the old town deserve the fatigue to climb up
