Destination Weddings in San Fruttoso

San Fruttuoso is a recess along a mountainous coast, near Portofino, accessible only from the sea or on foot. A unique destination for your wedding!

In this area, there are two powerful attractions. 

One is an ancient Benedictine monastery, with a small dome, which straddles the beach.

A unique setting for your photos that will give you that certain something. 

The other is the Christ of the Abyss (Il Cristo degli Abissi) is a bronze statue located 15 meters below the sea. Breathtaking place for those who love diving.

A copy of it is also found in Florida waters.

For a relaxing day waiting for the wedding, you can also opt for a boat trip to Santa Margherita or Portofino and, why not, accompany her on a tasting tour to discover the typical Ligurian flavors.

Absolutely to try is the Ligurian oil, famous throughout Italy for its lightness in taste, on a crouton. You will go crazy!

Or you could opt for delicious trofie (a type of pasta) with the famous Ligurian pesto: a tasty sauce made with basil, pine nuts, garlic, parmesan, pecorino cheese and extra virgin olive oil.

Being a resort overlooking the sea, fish dishes such as fish soups, ciuppin and buridda with stockfish cannot be missing, as well as stuffed and fried sardines.

All this can be accompanied by excellent wines from the area such as Ormeasco and Rossese from Dolceacqua, Vermentino, Ciliegiolo and Bianchetta from Genoa, Albarola and Pollera Nera from the Riviera di Levante, and Pigato from Salea d’Albenga.

And why not, if some dish strikes you particularly and you think your guests should definitely try it, you can add it to the menu of your wedding reception to give it a personal touch and make it unique.
