Located at a short distance from Lerici, the hamlet of Tallaro and the nearby district of Fiascherino, a small residential area immersed within the greenery of the hills and overlooking the sea, offer a relaxing and pleasant lifestyle, thanks to their panoramic position over the sea and their quiet and typically Ligurian atmosphere. Life in these hamlets is closely linked to the sea and to fishing, which have always represented the main economic activities of the hamlet. In addition to traditional activities, in recent years Tellaro has seen a notable development of tourism, with the creation of new accommodation facilities and the redevelopment of the historic center. Despite tourism, life in Tellaro and Fiascherino still retains an authentic and peaceful atmosphere, where it’s possible to stroll along the sea or among the olive trees of the surrounding hills, taste the typical dishes of the Ligurian cuisine in the local restaurants or simply relax on the beach.

Linked to the houses, but above all to the inhabitants of Tellaro, there is a legend that dates back to many years ago, in the 1600s.

The hamlet of Tellaro, once home to many fishermen, was guarded by a sentry who, in case of danger, had to immediately ring the bells of the Church of San Giorgio to warn the inhabitants of imminent invasions from the sea.

On a stormy evening the lookout, believing that the heavy rain and high waves would prevent possible invaders from approaching, left the bell tower and went home. During the night, however, the inhabitants of Tellaro were awakened by the strong tolling of the alarm bells; once they had averted the attack of the Saracen pirates they realized that on the top of the bell tower a huge octopus had moved the ropes of the bells and thus sounded the alarm. Since then the octopus has become the symbol of the hamlet.
