Triora is one of a collection of ancient hill towns that grace the lovely Argentine valley in the region of Liguria, close to the French border. It is surrounded by dramatic mountain scenery with facilities for walking, rock climbing etc. Much of the architecture dates back to the 12th century, but its period of greatest fame was during the 16th century when a number of witch trials were conducted by the Inquisition. The town boasts an excellent museum of witchcraft, and to this day has a powerful association with witches.  Some decedents of the original witches can still be seen in the town to this day!! (
