Between the sea and the hills
Monterosso Capuchin Monastery
First “heart place” 2015 for Italian National Treasure
Every year Italian National Trust makes a chart of the best “heart places” for Italian people. Monterosso Capuchin Monastery, in Cinque Terre National Park, is the first “heart place” in 2015!
This Monastery is a marvellous place, with a garden cultivated by monks and volunteers, a great view on Cinque Terre Gulf and a lot of sacred art treasures like a crucifixion by Van Dyck.
Both pilgrims and “common tourists” are welcomed!
