Festival for Madonna di Montallegro

Hi - I was told there was a festival in the Portofino area sometime in early July for Madonna di Montallegro. Does anyone know more about the festival and when it is? Any info is much appreciated!

Thanks

Rapallo. This year, July 1-3.

It's on July 1-3 every year; it celebrates the apparition of the Virgin Mary to a local shepherd. This year it won't be as popular as last year, as the three days fall during the week... but it's definitely worth watching! The last night also features a castle-burning show (not for real, of course).

If you sleep in Rapallo, get ready to be woken up in the morning by some cannon-like shooting.

Thanks for the help, and sorry for my delayed reply. We'll be staying in Santa Margherita Ligure until the 2nd. Are there any festivities there, or should we head to Rapallo to participate in the festivities?

You will need to head to Rapallo for the festivities.
