The old town is practicable only on foot and has been preserved with its buildings, centuries old, and its cobbled alleys where there are shops of artisans and artists.

According to some local historical sources the name Cervo derives from the Latin word Servant, ie “provide services”, already present on some signs or boards dating back to the Roman Empire. The current name was given in the late sixteenth century with the transition from Latin to the vernacular.
Following the conquest of Liguria in 181 BC by the Roman legions, the primitive village of Cervo became an important center due to its elevated position and the presence of some sources. Around 950 of the castrum Cervi became a fiefdom of the Marquis of Clavesana and in the following century was closed by imposing walls.
