There is a wall in Monterosso that women from my Italy Retreats helped build.
At Monterosso Wall, buying bricks for this memorial wall was one fund raiser that was created to re-build the town of Monterosso al Mare after the October 2011 devastating floods and rock slides. But, the town is back and better than ever. The towns people worked all winter long in 2011 and afterwards to rebuild. You can see photos of the flood here. I was eating outside this year, overlooking the sea, with the women from this year’s Italy Retreat when I looked over my shoulder, and spotted the wall at L’Ancora Della Tortuga Restaurant. It’s a great tribute to the people of Monterosso and their gallantry.
Tortuga is a wonderful restaurant to try in Monterosso–the sea view, food and atmosphere creates a winning combination, but be sure to make reservations for outside. And..besides, you can see the wall built by people from around the world.
