Local legend has it that the bright colors were chosen so that the fishermen could spot their homes from sea. The idea was introduced for more practical reasons: to delineate property. Today if a local would like to paint their house they have to submit forms to the local government, who will recommend several color options, from which residents may choose.

You can also sample the town’s signature fish dish, Risotto de go, and look at pastry shops for the locally baked bussola, a donut-shaped cake. The S-shaped ones are called esse, and are also well-known.
