The Cepollini family is one of the five noble families of Albenga (with Lengueglia, Cepolla, Cazzulini and Aste) the survived until the end of the Medieval age. The Cepollini Tower is built over the ancient romanic route crossing the town of Albenga on Medaglie d’Oro street, the old “Cardine Maximus” of Albenga. This is the tallest tower in Albenga, slightly leaning because of a ground movement after the earthquake that damaged the top of the tower in 1887.
