Ospedaletti set in a natural amphitheater, between Cape Nero and Cape Sant’Ampelio, is located just six miles from the center of Sanremo.

The origin of the town dates back to the dawn of the fourteenth century when a noble Provencal Fulcone of Villaret, Grand Master of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, Knights of the Order guardians of the Holy Sepulchre, was surprised by a terrible storm in the Gulf and along the Ligurian his crew was directed from Palestine to France.

The ship sank, but the nobleman and his fleet escaped and landed on the beach to swim the Giunchetto. Escaped the fury of the sea, they decided to thank St. John, erecting a chapel. In addition to the church the Crusaders, who later took the name of the Knights of Rhodes, built a hospice to provide assistance to pilgrims traveling to the Holy Land.
