Magnificent Setting

This is a beautiful area, unfortunately the late afternoon when we went was raining and very misty when we got up there, however it is well worth a look whatever the weather.

It is possible to walk along a path from the city of Rapallo to this church at Montallegro. I do this walk at least once a year when visiting Rapallo. You will be rewarded with fantastic little spots were you can look at the view and perhaps rest if you feel you need to. When you get to the top... More

We didn't go into the sanctuary so it may not be fair to comment. We didn't feel like paying to go into 'another church'.

one the highlights of our trip was taking the cable car up the mountain (a short walk from the hotel) to the Church on top of the mountain.

This sanctuary dedicated to the Madonna of Montallegro, patron saint of Rapallo since 1739, houses a small painting over the main alter which was given as a gift to a Ligurian farmer on July 2nd 1557 when he had a sighting and met the Virgin Mary on a trail near to the site of where the sanctuary is now built....

This church is at the to of the mountain and is a fair walk up a slope once you leave the cable car. Very ornate inside.

Beautiful church, with lots of history. It's situation near the mountain top overlooking Rapallo, is well worth the cable car trip to visit it. So peaceful, and serene. Definitely worth it.

Loved the cable car ride to the top! The church is beyond beautiful and breathtaking! Wished we had more time to spend enjoying a meal at the little cafe there. We did enjoy the gift shop at the Basilica and purchased many memorable souveniers.

Visiting this place is to come to a place with tranquility, peace, closer to heaven and in the middle of nature far away from the busy and noisy city. We plan during our next visit to stay a couple of nights enjoying the silence and peace.
