The stream near Rialto
The Pora in Finalborgo

The river rises at around 1000 m in the Ligurian Alps, not faraway from Colle del Melogno, at the jonction between rio Rivase and Rio Peccione, in the comune of Rialto. Flowing in the Valle Pora it passes through the comune of Calice Ligure, where it receives from left the waters of torrente Carbuta. Heading south-east the Pora reaches Finlaborgo and gets its main tributary, torrente Aquila; a couple of km downstream it ends its course in the Ligurian Sea, after being crossed by the Genoa–Ventimiglia railway and the Aurelia national road.

Pora basin (59 km2) is totally included in the Province of Savona
