The cliff of Torre Aurora (16th century) neatly divides the Monterosso’s historical centre from the most recent settlements in Fegina,
born westward close to the only wide and sandy beach in that area.
In the ancient village, quite well conserved and dominated from above by the ruins of the old “castrum” Obertengo,
you will find the interesting Church of S.Giovanni Battista built between 1244 and 1307, with one nave and two aisles,
beautiful example of the ligurian gothic style, has at its side an embattled bell-tower, born as a fortification and then raised in the 15th century.
In Soviore, now Monterosso’s high grounds, there is the ancient Sanctuary of Madonna di Soviore.
