  • Upon reaching Monterosso with an easy path you reach the Church of Capuchins: a haven of peace where the artistic and landscape are only a pale advance of wealth that you can receive by staying in the convent at spiritual retreats organized by Father Renato. Fraternal sharing, prayer, silence, meditation conducted by experienced preachers, the deepening of Franciscan spirituality are the treasures to which we can access welcomed considerately by a friar "lover of God".

  • Unfortunately the path that goes from the promenade is full of trash bags left there for who knows how long for neglect of the park that instead of protecting this beauty has defaced with the abandonment. Maybe we deserve these beauties. From the hill there is a breathtaking and upon entering the Church it was exciting to hear the chants of monks

  • The sun rising and setting over the sea that blends into the sky ... the feeling of eternal! the 5 Terre Unesco and a small Capuchin Convent, a treasure trove of spirituality and essential teaching of St. Francis a small humble church construction materials and rich in works of art by artists such as Van Dyck Assistant of Rubens, Luca Cambiaso, Bernardo Strozzi in which blends to art a message of birth of life! Just open your hands to feel physically the divine cosmic energy or on the skin, really cool place where a smile opens hearts

  • SIMPLE IS BEAUTIFUL AND THIS CHURCH IS EXACTLY THAT. BEYOND THE CHURCH I HAVE ENJOYED THE RELAXING WALK THROUGH THE PATH THAT TAKES YOU TO IT.
