Good to take a break during the visit of the old town but not a must see. Seems to be inside an old chapel. Beautiful pictures.

This has to be one of the most unlikely attractions one could find in a medieval Italian village: a 3D mini-cinema with surround sound and special aromatic effects. The premises are quirky, old fashioned and charming, and a pleasant cool escape from the heat outside. It was surreal to find ourselves absorbed in the sights, sounds and smells of Himalayan village life while on holiday in Liguria. It's also worth spending a few minutes admiring the wooden models of the village and castle inside the visionarium at the end of the movie. There are several films to choose from and no fixed viewing times, as far as we could see. We just turned up and chose a film.

You don't expect to discover such an unusual and deeply emotional experience in a little mediaeval town! Yet the proprietor has created a 3D experience that challenges all the senses with his 3D envisioning of Peru, Nepal, and places more local. You are completely wrapped up in the experience
