Amazing church

Cable car not working so had to drive up a bit scary in places but so worth it. Beautiful church and outstanding views. Restaurants up there if you fancy a dinner in with views.

We watched the end of a mass in the lovely sactuary. It is truly on top of the mountain. We took the cable car to the top but decided to walk the 4k down. It was very intense and a bit treacherous due to recent rainfall. It took us about an hour and a half to make our way down,... More

We loved this place. The views are amazing and the ride up is slow but nice. My husband and I spent about an hour there and then walked back to Rapallo (the walk is not easy) 🍻🍻

I like to visit all churches in all places I visit. I found very interesting the building of this place. I prefer to write my opinions in Spanish, I am argentine, that is why I can´t say all I would like to express about places I visited

One of the best things to do in Rapallo. After the chuch walk to ll pellegrino restaurant where you will get a fantastic capachino with stunning views. It's a pity that there are no night time buses running here-a great place for an evening meal.

Nothing overly special about this church but it is a great trip up in the cable car. You get some good views from the front of the church but even better views from the cafe 150 metres behind the church. When finished with the church head down the left hand side of the church. At the cafe you can sit... More

We took the cable car to reach the hill, some steps up and you reach the magnificent Sanctuary. From there the view is outstanding, you see the city, hills and the great blue of the sea. The Sanctuary itself is a piece of art, not too big but it is worth to see. Besides this, there are different paths behind... More

The journey up the mountain via cable car is a great experience in itself with fabulous views and transition into a different, more peaceful place. The church is beautiful with woodlands around it and old charming stations of the cross not far behind it. The restaurant is a lovely stop even for a coffee which tastes even better with outstanding... More
