Lovely church, but at this stage of our 30 day travels we were just about blessed out. Still a piece of history and beautiful to see.

Quite demanding climb - 450 m elevation gain in just 3 km. Amazing views, away from crowds. Nice church, I recommend the road for going down.

The five star rating is for the view. We climbed up from Montorosso. That is a pretty good climb, but lovely. Almost all of the hike is in shade.

Nice Sanctuary, a shrine place, the church is small and very pretty; she is on a height near the sea in Monterosso; a nice place for a walk.

Over 2 Hours up hill almost all steps. Very challenging but very rewarding! Gorgeous views and a beautiful historic Montessori. Walk downhill towards Vernassi twice as difficult!
