Runner Notes

At the Sanctuary of Soviore there is a bar and public restrooms.

Description

Follow Via Roma from the center of the old town of Monterosso to the outskirts of town. The trailhead is a stairway on the lefthand side of the road. The stairway passes alongside a lemon grove. A mix of stairs and singletrack continue up out of Monterosso.

From the Provincial Road 330, the trail climbs along an old mule path to a small chapel and then to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Soviore, one of the oldest Marian churches in the region of Liguria. From the square in front of the church, there is a panoramic view over Monterosso and Punta Mesco.

Flora & Fauna

You may see deer and wild boar.
