The most western and populous of Cinque Terre; its foundation could be dated in the 9th century. In the 13th, Monterosso was contended between the rival forces of Genova and Pisa, being finally occupied by the first. In 1545 it was severely damaged, like most coastal villages in Italy, by a Turkish attack. The remaining of the castle keep the traces of these conflicts, featuring three round towers, the square "Torre Aurora" on the cliff and the medieval tower in the village centre.

The fourth of the Cinque Terre was born around the fortress, whose structure is still visible, founded by inhabitants of the nearby village of Volastra to exploit the marine resources.
