  • In a magnificent day start working April hopped to the sanctuary by cable car. Beautiful scenery, chatting with the driver and on arrival awaits an avenue of Oaks that suddenly pops up to show the imposing façade candida with lozenges of sanctuary. The view of the Bay is breathtaking. The Interior is richly decorated with numerous votive offerings of the person seeking or received thanks. The place is mystical and leads to prayer and meditation. Outside, behind the sanctuary a driveway in the middle of the woods with the chapels of the stations of the cross, even this walk gives serenity and a great sense of peace. If you go to Rapallo can't beat visiting Montallegro!

  • Spotted this shrine via the web. One morning we tried to reach him through the beautiful and scenic cable car, but without success, for lack of parking lots. We did it two days later, this time leaving your car in the parking of the station. Nice quiet place in the green hills of Liguria. Nice also the sacred mountain with cross site above the sanctuary.

  • 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.
