  • Started my walk at dusk and just kept going up the stairs until I reached the monastery. The crypts provided a creepy experience and some great photos at night. The way back provides some great views ...  more »
  • To see the Church, need to climb 200 meters on cool running up the track. Although the temple, from the perspective of a tourist, differs little from those in the area, it makes sense to climb. At least in order to admire the beautiful opening above the landscape.

  • Impressive place, overlooking the Bay, great views from the top. Can be reached on foot and along with the cemetery is worth a visit. Inside a crucifixion by Van Dyck

  • 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.
  • Go past the convent and enter the cemetery. Keep walking up and up and soon you'll have a view of all the five villages of Cinque Terra.
  • I love come and go in this haven of peace. I like to meet the last Capuchin monk who is the soul of this convent. Us also to appreciate the canvas of the Crucifixion attributed to Van Dick.
