Monterosso Al Mare _ Liguria _ Italy


Monterosso al Mare is the westernmost of the Cinque Terre. Behind the hills covered with vineyards and olive trees, Monterosso has beautiful beaches, rugged cliffs and crystalline waters.

The Aurora tower above the hill of San Cristoforo, separates the medieval old town, which developed along the banks of the River Branco, now covered by the modern residential area that stretches along the beach.

Old Monterosso is dominated by the remains of the castle overlooking the sea obertenga, the typical tower houses crossed by narrow alleys.

In the sixteenth century Monterosso was surrounded by thirteen towers, round towers, three of whom remain in the castle, the medieval tower, now the church tower of St. John, and the Aurora Tower.

The beach of Monterosso is the largest of the Cinque Terre and therefore the country has a vocation to a purely tourist. Monterosso has the most hotel accommodation in the Cinque Terre and the east coast of La Spezia.
Of note the narrow alleys of the old country.

  1. Hi Grace, i would rather there was a little bit of sunshine. Unfortunately. Liguria has a particular climate, indecipherable and capricious

  4. Hi Polly, welcome back. The Black Winged Stilt, is a very nice bird, very noisy with his singing. I am attending a very interesting place, where these and other migratory birds have stopped. I am preparing a lot of material for the blog, about this site, with photos and video.
