Bordighera is a town of about 10 thousand inhabitants, a real jewel of the Ligurian west. Its historic centre has preserved the characteristics of the medieval era. In addition to the charm of history, the city offers tourists the beauty of its sea overlooking the Riviera di Ponente. Its most hidden and exuberant natural beauties discovered little by little, appreciated for its excellent climate and for the quietness offered by numerous walks under olive and palm groves, Bordighera quickly became a first class residential centre, very popular at the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the early twentieth century with the English. The English organized a true centre of British style, with their banks, agencies, shops, cultural and sports clubs, the Anglican Church, the theatre ("Victoria Hall"). Even today, more than a century later, the main institutions of the period survive and allow Bordighera of our time to keep the prestigious cultural tradition intact through the Bicknell Museum and the International Civic Library.
