Bordighera, also called "the City of Palms", is the northernmost point in Europe where palm trees grow. Every year, on the occasion of Palm Sunday, Bordighera offers its traditional Parmureli - handmade embellishments of braided palm leaves - to the Vatican. They are worn by the Pope and the cardinals during the official service on St. Peter's Square to celebrate the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem.
