Beautiful Sanchuary!!!
Nov 2018 • Friends
On the hills of Montenero, overlooking Livorno and the sea is the sacred Sanctuary of the Madona Of Montenero, she has been worshiped since the 14 century, the view is beautiful and the sanctuary is a place of peace and prayer, there are many small paintings describing the miracles people have been blessed with. Worth seeing.Try to avoid Sundays, and religious holidays, too many people.

A beautiful 14th century sanctuary up on the hills of Montenero
Oct 2016 • Family
Our group took the bus from Livorno to the town of Montenero, which was just a 25-minute ride. We then took the funicular (an inclined plane railway tram) to the top of the hill where the sanctuary is located.

It was a Thursday, and already late in the afternoon when we arrived, so the place was pretty much empty. The patios around the piazza had a few people sitting around having coffee. We went into the church, which was almost empty as well; a good thing because it was so quiet and peaceful. After saying a prayer, we walked around and marvelled at the beautiful art works inside the church. The altar was simple but beautiful, and the paintings and art works above the main doors were impressive.

At the piazza, there was a viewing deck overlooking the Livorno skyline. We enjoyed the magnificent sunny afternoon view to the west, with the blazing orange sunlight reflecting on the waters of the Livorno Bay. As always, we took some pictures of the view (always a good idea to have a decent camera with you).

Very much worth the visit; we wished that we could stay for the early evening to see the Livorno skyline by night while having dinner at one of the patios in the piazza, but we already had something scheduled for that evening.

Highly recommended!

A lovely, peaceful location with great views over the bay. Make sure you check the opening times as the sanctuary was closed for lunch whilst I was there. The grotto and toilets were still open.

Relaxing and reflective experience
Nov 2016 • Solo
Montenero offers a wonderful view from the hills, and it looks like being in the early years of the 1900s. The sanctuary deserves a visit, especially for its spiritual value, but also as a place to share experiences of faith and gratefulness.
