The dock

Near the Loggia there are small lanes like via della Compera, via Molinelli and vico dei Finollo wich represented the dock of Levanto and wich were storehouses (today we found out 11 of them on a surface of 4000square meters) of the canal port at the outlet of Cantarana river.This landing place, on service from the low middle-age to the beginning of XVI century, was an important trade point to Val di Vara, Parma and Piacenza. Of this structure there are some ruins left inside the walls of the houses built later on ( local serpentine arches, some of them are quite big).
