LE GRAZIE: shipbuilders, deep sea divers and… monks

Located on the west coast of the Gulf of La Spezia, a few kilometers from Portovenere,Le Grazie is one of the richest places in seafaring culture of our territory.For centuries ,in the safe and sheltered harbor, shipbuilders  among the best in Liguria, have build superb boats of all sizes with undiminished passion, passing on this art from father to son.But the sea, for these tenacious Ligurians, has no secrets even in its depth.Recently in fact, recognizing a centuries-old tradition, Le Grazie was declared a City of Divers and constitutes the unique Italian headquarter of organizations and graduate schools related to diving activities.
This coastal village is also characterized by a great religious tradition, as witnessed by the beautiful church dedicated to Our Lady of Grace,in whose honor the village, formerly called Ria, took the name and from the Convent of the Olivetani monks where, in the refectory, you can admire fine frescoes by Nicolo Corso .
