A festival was on when we were there - church had a lot of activity. Made our stay at the hotel more noisy but it added to the charm for us.

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’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.
