Things to see
In 1910, an impressive statue of Neptune was constructed on the western end of the beach out of cement and iron. This statue used to hold up a shell-shaped terrace but much of it was lost during bombings in World War II.
For centuries it was possible to reach Monterosso only by sea or mule paths. The situation changed in 1870 when the newly born Italian government decided to built a railroad line. Today the mule paths are perfect for hiking: the views that they offer are breathtaking!
