The traces of settlement here go back to the VIth BC century, it is mentioned in the historical sources starting from IIth AC as Portus Veneris.

Its name would be issued of an old temple dedicated to the Venere goddess (Venus) which would have occupied the current place of Saint-Peter church.
Its rock coast, its castle, the church San Pietro, its sanctuaries and its tourist sea front make a town of charm.
