History

History

The name Leca comes from the Middle Ages, during which it was called "Leuca", a derivation from a wild Margherite art known as "Leucanthemum". It is assumed that this name was already in use during the Roman era. In the Middle Ages it was used as a summer residence for the nobility who wanted to escape the unhealthy atmosphere in the city where malaria was prevalent. At present, it has about 2,000 inhabitants and is an important agricultural center in the plains of Albenga.
