Historical mule track between Riomaggiore and the watershed Vara-Mare.
The route branches off from the road near the Castle - beyond which one finds the aedicula dedicated to the Madonna del Castello - and then it climbs again up to cross the Provincial Road 370 (called Litoranea).
Through the terraces of vineyards and vegetable gardens, the path No. 501 quickly climbs the Costa Campione again. Along the route one notices the neglected vineyards making way for the chestnut forests and the pinewoods. On one side of a vineyard there is a tabernacle which contained a votive image made of white marble representing the Immaculate, that is no longer present. The aedicula is commonly known as "Maduneta di Palermi", since it was named after the customer's family.
