Passage to Limen: the way of Cinque Terre among Five Elements

on July 26th 2020

The calendar starts on July 26 with “Passage to Limen”, the journey dedicated to the five elements that in total harmony coexist in Cinque Terre.

The appointment is at 7.30 am at Riomaggiore train station from where we will head towards Lavaccio, passing through the Church of San Giovanni Battista, and then continue to the Sanctuary of Madonna di Montenero (open in exceptional way for the Anniversary of the Coronation). After we will arrive to the Telegraph from where we will continue to the megalithic archaeological site of Monte Grosso. The return to Lavaccio is scheduled for 2.00 pm where the buffet lunch will be ready on the beautiful terrace of the L’Arcobaleno.

“We chose the name Passage to Limen because the word limen, thet is also the name of the vineyards where we will pass by, was representative of the experience we want to live. Limen is a border area that does not necessarily means “barrier”, but can also be interpretated as “threshold”, as a mysterious, almost initiatory passage between an earthly and a spiritual dimension, “says Mattia Confalonieri of Namastrail , among the organizers. “During the trail each stage is dedicated to an element (air, water, earth, fire and ether) and every time the hikers will be involved in very deep activities, including songs, meditations, aromas and crystals. It will be very exciting and meaningful”.

“That’s right” continues Gianluca Pezzino “but it will also be a passage between past and present, in which we will link the departure from the Church of San Giovanni Battista and the visit to the beautiful Sanctuary of the Madonna of Montenero to the archaeo-astronomical site of Monte Grosso. Creating a connection between the symbols of our Christian tradition with the animistic ones of the pre-Christian civilizations (that were very bond with the Universe and the elements), we will live the chance to make up with those primitive and unconscious forces that in everyday life we ​​tend to hide” .
