Monterosso Capuchin Monastery

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