Once you cross the small marina of Santa Margherita, you walk along terraced crop fields and colourful villas and reach a town called Nozarego, once a favourite destination for pilgrims visiting the Sanctuary of the Holy Mary. From here, you cross chestnut groves and cultivations along an easy trail and reach the "Mulino del Gassetta", an ancient mill with its original millstones, that has been recently refurbished and transformed in a refresment point inside Portofino Park, where you can taste typical, local products.
After lunch, it is possible to walk back down and reach Paraggi Bay going across the Mills' Valley, a steep path that crosses one of the park's areas where 35 mills originally ground olives, chestnut and cereals for the surrounding areas.
