Monterosso is not just nature to live, it is also history to appreciate and make its own thanks to its ancient village and its origins. Some historians argue that the first human settlement of the town occurred even before the Roman era: but some mention of its existence is reported around 643 and under the name of Albareto, due to its destruction by the Lombards. The official birth of Monterosso al Mare as it is still known happens in the ninth century, thanks to the recognition of the characteristic village built at the mouth of the Buranco torrent.

The ancient village that can still be visited, albeit with very few modifications, is the same that previously belonged to the possessions of the Obertenghi family and which then passed into the hands of the Fieschi Counts and then to the local Lagneto lords. Its particular location and its productions saw it become, together with the rest of the Cinque Terre, territory disputed by the Republic of Genoa and Pisa: the latter occupied Monterosso from 1241 to 1254, when it returned “Ligurian” to all effects becoming property of the captain of Levanto.

To memory of its history remain the castle and its walls that includes several towers, among which are still Aurora Tower, overlooking the sea and the one in front of the parish space of the church of St John Baptiste.
