You currently can't see anything here due to repairs. Monterosso is a very quiet town, there is not much to do but walk around or go to a market on the other side of the hill.

We visited in the last few days and you can’t see it. Work is being done at present. There is much to enjoy here so don’t let this make or break whether you visit this beautiful spot

We were fortunate enough to have this as our view from the patio of our rental property. It is truly an amazing sculpture with an interesting story. There is a public beach right below with a small restaurant and bar so you can sit back...More
