A really beautiful wall of pottery plaques and statues. The wall has been there since the 1960s so really interesting. Only down point is this padlock phase that seems to be tsking over tourist sites as they ruin your photos

We had coffee opposite the Muretto and after we wandered down the wall look at the names and sometimes hand prints of great writers and actors. It's a great way to have a romp through time. It is unusual and worth seeing. Whitebeard83

We love the Muretto to see all the different tiles. Definitely a must when you are visiting Alassio. Very close to the train station.

An intesteting spot in Alassio. Rather touching. Of course most names you would not know, but some very famous people left their signs. Time permitting fun to search for them

Just one of the places to visit during the stay in Alassio. A piece of history of the town and fun to read the messages.
