Church
“One of the most enchanting (and peaceful!) Viewpoints of the Cinque Terre! The panorama ranges from the island of Tinetto to Punta Mesco. silent and suggestive place. The shrine of Our Lady of Montenero is a place of Catholic worship located in the locality of the same name in the municipality of Riomaggiore, in the province of La Spezia. The sanctuary, reachable only through a mule track from the provincial road 370, rises to 340 meters above sea level. Although the first documented records date back to documents of 1335, popular sources attest to the presence of a primitive place of worship since the eighth century, built by the inhabitants of Riomaggiore after a Marian vision in 790 to the young Maria del Paladino”

Church
“In the gabled façade there is a rose window and a Gothic portal bearing a marble bas-relief depicting the Madonna Addolorata. Originally the internal structure of the building had a division with three naves: the remains of the ancient capitals and the original columns are still visible today around the sanctuary. Today the interior of the church has a single nave, after the transformation work that was carried out during the sixteenth century. The interior decoration has several cycles of frescoes, in particular in the barrel vault, in which the story of the Finding of the sacred Marian image and a Pietà are represented. The sanctuary also preserves numerous votive offerings, mostly of a maritime nature. The mighty bell tower in front of the church is predominantly Romanesque.”
