History in the Cinque Terre – Convento dei Cappuccini

 

History plays a major role in the Cinque Terre.

 

The region does not only offer natural treasures and hiking opportunities. So many landmarks will transform our stay in the area into a unique cultural experience. Go deep into Monterosso and the Cinque Terre history visiting the Convent of the Cappuccini Friars.

One of the places we cannot mis is the Convento dei Cappuccini in Monterosso. In 2018 the Capuchin Friars Convent celebrated 400 years from its foundation.

1618 – 2018 anniversary of the Capuchin Friars in Monterosso

 

The convent of Monterosso al Mare, property of the Order of Capuchin Friars Minor of the province of Genoa, has always been a landmark both for the local community and for visitors to the Cinque Terre.

The Friars of the Convent are constantly around the village spreading the voice of God to all those who wish to listen or are looking for spiritual help. They have a word of comfort for sick and elderly people, a word of encouragement for the youth and a smile for everybody to relief them from the daily anxieties and ordinary troubles.

The Capuchin Friars have always been part of the community and a reliable spiritual reference.

Monterosso population has always loved and respected the Convent, which, together with the Sanctuary of the Madonna of Soviore, represents a deeply intense reference point of devotion.

The Convent

 

The site has always been held in great reverence and is greatly loved by the population. It overlooks Monterosso Bay and is located on the promontory that separates the ancient part of the town from the Fegina locality, which has sprung up in recent times.

The convent is visible from all parts of the Cinque Terre and is a prime attraction for tourists, thanks to its historical and artistic treasures.

They are reminiscent of the 1600 building in Capuchin style, with the altar and choir in wood.

Among its works of art there is a “Crucifixion“, attributed to Van Dyck and “Saint Girolamo the penitent” by Luca Cambiaso.

The refectory with its vaulted ceiling features Strozzi’s “Veronica“.

The convent has maintained the characteristics typical of the time of its origins and its sublime views invite to  contemplation.

The convent is mentioned in all the historical and artistic guides of the territory, both in Italy and abroad, and along with the Cinque Terre, is part of the UNESCO patrimony.

Being creative is related to inspiration, fascination, innovation, unique, inventiveness, ingenuity, resourcefulness and so forth. Sad to say, many individuals will want to copy from some one than be creative.
