If you happen to be in Rapallo on the 1st, 2nd or 3rd of July, Rapallo vants a wonderful fireworks display and religious procession dedicated to the Madonna of Monteallegro, their patron Saint. The fireworks display is put on by committees which represent the six quarters (sestriere-neighborhoods) of Rapallo. The religious procession which takes place in the early evening is... More

I couldn't actually go into the building as it wasn't open until a week or so after I had left, but still stunning to look at and in a great location.
