Historical mule track linking Vernazza with the villages situated all over the uplands, and the Nostra Signora di Reggio Sanctuary. The path begins in the built-up area of Vernazza, near the train station, and its first stretch avails itself of the historical Pastenello staircase. From here one follows the street leading to the cemetery, and walking along the perimeter wall one takes the historical paved road. The route is traditionally used for the religious procession of the Way of the Cross, therefore some marble bas-reliefs with sacred images (the Stations of the Cross) are situated on the edge of it, enclosed in aediculae or nestled in the dry-stone walls delimiting the terraces cultivated with grapevine. The path goes on among the olive trees up to the locality of San Bernardo.
