We would recommend you visit this church, from Rapallo on the Funivia. A short walk up the path and steps to find this retreat. Beautiful ornate, decorate frescos and stunning vistas of the surrounding mountains/villages.

The sanctuary is a cable car ride from Rapallo. The interior of the sanctuary is well worth a visit - I'll not spoil it by showing you a photo. The views from around the sanctuary are spectacular.

It was very interesting trip. View is spectacular. Mountines and houses are like in game so small and beautiful.

It’s a steep climb but with the cable train you’r in 8 min up hill. And this santuario di Montallegro is no exception one of the most beautiful sites of Rappalo to see.
