It has churches of the Roman Catholic, Russian Orthodox, Lutheran, Romanian Orthodox and Waldesian churches - there was also an Anglican and Presbyterian congregation in the past, these still have their own cemetery in Bordighera. Cycling races, car rallies and sailing regattas are among the sporting highlights.
