Abstract. This essay describes an integrated approach – field survey, historic research, climate data, and topography – for the analysis of a complex stratigraphical archaeological site, highlighting its peculiar aspects and its conservation state, and contributing to the studies of this area.
The case study is San Calocero monastery in Albenga, one of the most important historical evidence of the city, located on the San Martino Hillside, dating back to the VI century but with a complex historical stratigraphy until the XVI century, along with other relevant archaeological sites, such as the Baptistery, the Ponte Lungo, the churches of San Clemente and San Vittore, which, as long as San Calocero, went through several changes over the years.
