  • This sculpture is near the train station, a really quick walk. You can access the beach area for free and take the photos.  more »
  • Two two "monterossini", returned from Argentina after having made a fortune in 1910 erected the majestic and colossal giant statue, which depicts the God of the sea, Neptune. She's 14 meters long and weighs 1700 pounds. He was part of villa Pastine, on behalf of clients, but, after being destroyed their mansion during World War, world, the monumental statue, now crippled though partially restored, was moved onto the beach. Today is leaning to a spike of rock overlooking the beach to which it gave its name. From an artistic point of view has great value, but has become an emblem of the village, survived a war of devastation, and despite all dominant and towering, albeit unhealthy, able to call its own scale, almost a sign of continuity and life after the destruction of war.

  • The trail is reported, at the end of the Fegina beach you above the giant statue and seems almost invite you to climb the narrow passage lined with elegant turreted villas. Just beyond you will discover a beautiful Bay and Punta Mesco. Although the sky is gray and the temperature fall, we dream of a beautiful walk. But the dream does not last long: fifty meters away a peremptory sign obliges us to drop off, danger falling boulders! But not enough, look around, in this little paradise we find many signs of abandonment. As if the responsibility of the administrators of this country to stop the "giant" and besides there isn't anything, nor to watch nor to care and defend (but in Riomaggiore perhaps is worse, if the famous "path of love" is still closed). Fegina doesn't offer, however-with its streets and suburban homes just over the front line of the waterfront-the most stylish welcome to Monterosso: this old town, second only to the nearby Vernazza, and where the food and dessert you can surprise. But that's another story.
