Cradled by the mountains, an important place for pilgrims of all times. Where you can enrich your spirit, amongst the trails of nature and the places of worship

Tiny township on the slopes of Mount Pegge, not far from the seashores of Rapallo and Chiavari, hidden by the mountains of the southern ridge of Fontanabuona. Be seduced by the magnificent olive groves and vineyards, by the vegetable gardens and orchards. In a landscape speckled with small groups of houses, the church of San Giacomo, better known as Santiago di Compostela stands majestic. Here the roots of faith sink deep. The worship of the pilgrim saint is still celebrated now with an event where the statue is the protagonist of a spectacular procession. You can experience more spiritual moments in the chapel of San Bartolomeo and in the sanctuary of Nostra Signora di Montallegro built in honour of an apparition of the Madonna.
