The Sanctuary of Montallegro( Rapallo)

"The Sanctuary is situated in a splendid panoramic position, about 600 meters above sea level, on the crest of the mountain at the center of a dense holm oak. From the square enjoy an extraordinary view of the west coast of the Gulf of Tigullio, with the towns of Rapallo and Santa Margherita interspersed with coves of San Michele and Paraggi, until the unmistakable shape of the promontory of Portofino. "
"The spectacular ride up the hill to Montallegro on the funivia, or cable railway, takes eight minutes....
At the top is the large Sanctuary of Montallegro, .... on the walls inside are many offerings, mostly for miracles at sea. There are also two hotels...

...For those traveling by train, just get off at Rapallo, and just behind the same station, is the cable car to reach the Sanctuary. 
For those traveling by car or bus on the A12 motorway, the exit is Rapallo. "

                                   Several hiking trails start from Montallegro.



Rapallo, the beautiful sea...and me...
