  • The sanctuary is located in the hills above the village of Rapallo is reachable by car or via trail or the only cableway in Liguria from Rapallo. The shrines are dedicated to the apparition of the Virgin Mary to a peasant on 2 January 1552 whereby again each year in the country at that time you organize a big party that lasts for three days with procession and Fireworks. The sanctuary is located in a stunning setting and from the courtyard you can enjoy an impressive view over the coast. The Interior is richly decorated and full of votive offerings.

  • This year I'm back, as I do every year, to the shrine of our Lady of Montallegro. I go there by cable car, although sometimes, in spring-summer I went there by car. The road is quite narrow and winding, but goes up to 600 meters from the sea level. A visit to the shrine is always rewarding and wonderful, as well as wonderful is the view from up there. Best cable car!

  • A small cable car from Rapallo, but also accessible via a narrow road for small vehicles, that climbs the hills overlooking the Gulf of Tigullio, the shrine stands at the top of a staircase, very impressive and in December, also beautifully quiet ... a magical and profound. And a breathtaking view. To see

  • Very nice views of Genoa. Alone the cable car a visit is worth. Then the Church and then in the restaurant with panoramic view of Genoa.
