We walked from Levanto (where we were staying) to Monterosso

5 miles, about 3 hours, height gained 305 m = 1,000 feet

 From the sea-front we climbed up steep steps to the castle, then uphill

On the top of the Cape of Mesco, there are eleventh century ruins of a small church, dedicated to San Antonio the Prior.
