As you make a visit to the old part of Monterosso in Cinque Terre, you will come across a huge medieval structure overlooking the great Mediterranean Sea. Known as the Dawn tower, this is actually a medieval castle that stands exactly at hinge of Monterosso's Old Town and the New Town. For Cinque Terre, this tower offers itself as a postcard image and is thus a great place to click memorable pictures. There used to be a fortified structure around it which now must have vanished due to ravages of time.
- A day time visit to this place is recommended.
- Entry is free.
- By foot

Great location, we had the bar top which overlooked the sea and at night was truly amazing. Staff were incredibly helpful and spoke great English if needed. Menu was creative, and a nice mix of items to choose from. The ravioli with lobster and shrimp was to die for paired with their house white wine. Mains could be seen as a bit pricey but are worth every penny, as the views and food quality are top notch. Well done
We had our wedding dinner here. The service was amazing, the food outstanding. It’s a great place to have lunch and dinner with a small/medium size group (we were 30+). I can only say good things of that place. We will be back!
Delicious food and amazing view point to sit while you’re eating. Had one of the best meat fillet and steak salmon. For desert, we took the tart lemon which was great as well. This place is a bit pricey (30 euro for main dish) but it’s worth it!
Great service! Great food! The ambiance of the open sky and sea is absolutely incredible! Well worth every penny!!!
Simply the best views in all of Monterosso! We enjoyed aperitifs on the tower's battlements with sweeping views of the Ligurian Sea. Lunch at the garden overlooking the beach and new town was also a wonderful experience. There is also a terrace that faces the old town, if that is more preferable.
