Ospedaletti (Ligurian: Spiareti[2]) is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Imperia in the Italian region of Liguria, located about 120 kilometres (75 mi) southwest of Genoa and about 25 kilometres (16 mi) southwest of Imperia.

Ospedaletti borders the following municipalities: Bordighera, Sanremo, Seborga, and Vallebona.

History

Ospedaletti is named after a 14th-century hospital which was established by the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem.

Geography

Located between Caponero and Cape Sant'Ampelio, just six kilometers from Sanremo, it gets some north winds. It is about 30 kilometres (19 mi) from Imperia, the provincial capital. The lush, sub-tropical vegetation, combined with a moderate and refined urbanization, makes Ospedaletti the pearl of the Riviera dei Fiori (Coast of Flowers). The climate is usually mild.
