While in Ossegna you can tour the Parish Church of San Michele Arcangelo.

In early summer up to autumn you can also visit the holy feasts, for example the feast of Sant Isidoro on 15th May, the feast of the Sant Antonio on 13th June and the feast of the San Michele Arcangelo on 29th September.

The natural environment around Ossegna is also wonderful. We therefore recommend a hiking excursion on Monte Cucco, for example. From up there you can see the entire landscape.

History

History

Ossegna was inhabited by the Ligurian tribe of Lapicini. In 205 BC Ossegna then became part of the 9th Roman region. Ossegna lies at the Via Romea, which is a branch of the Roman road. The locality was then governed by the Este family and in 1031 it was given to the Arch-Diocese of Genoa.

In 1547 the area was given to the Doria family. In 1797 Ossegna became part of the Ligurian Republic, and in 1805 it was added to the First French Empire. In 1815 Ossegna was integrated into the Sardinian kingdom, before it was passed over to the Italian kingdom in 1861.

Ossegna was then added to the municipality of Maissana. From 1973 to 2011 Ossegna was part of the mountain communities of Montana Alta and Val di Vara.
