Help improve Atlas Obscura by expanding Cat Shrine with additional information or photos.
Located on the walking path between Monterosso and Vernazza in the Cinque Terre National Park, locals have constructed a shrine to the cats of the area. The shrine has been in place since at least 2014, and the cats and shrine were still present in 2022 on a return visit.
The shrine includes a bin of food as well as feeding instructions for visitors, and local cats tend to hang around the area to beg treats from travelers traversing the paths between the cities.
