Thanks to the archaeological findings discovered in this area, it is possible to date back the origin of Monterosso Almo to the 6th – 7th century BC when it was dominated by Romans and Arabs, until Ruggiero the Count of Adone destroyed them conquering the area. Enrico II Rosso started to renovated and improve the town but the 1693 earthquake destroyed every part of this settlement.

the Church of S.Giovanni Battista built in XVI, the Church of Matrice di Santa Maria Assunta, the Church of Sant’Antonio Abate which includes precious paintings and the Church of Sant’Anna which holds incredible frescos dating back to the 1649.
