Salita Cappuccini, 19026 Monterosso al Mare, Italy
Started my walk at dusk and just kept going up the stairs until I reached the monastery. The crypts provided a creepy experience and some great photos at night. The way back provides some great views of Monterosso al Mare.
After visiting the monument of San Francesco d'Assisi keep going up the hill to the chapel at the Capuchin Friars monastery. And beyond the chapel there is the amazing Monterosso cemetery, which we were not expecting. Some great views too. Definitely worth the climb.
To get to the Capuchin Church was a relatively steep walk but afforded you the best views from Monterosso. We were treated to Gregorian Chants coming from the chapel at the top of the monastery. Well worth the hike.
