Make the Most of Your Hike

You had to come all the up here, so make the most of it. You'll see more fascinating things in Cinque Terra and Italy, but this will help you spend some time in Corniglia.

We were very happy that we visited this little church in Corniglia. It had a peaceful feeling so we lit a few special candles and counted our blessings.

This is more a review for Corniglia as a whole rather than St Pietro, though it is worth the short walk up to the church for a look inside but also because the viewpoint here provides commanding views across Corniglia as a whole and its surrounds. We visited all 5 of the Cinque Terre but agreed Corniglia is the most... More

Nothing to write home about, just a church and it looks good on the background. It's hard to make a church step up.

If you're hiking through Cinque Terre towns, one of the interesting types of stops is churches like this. Just like the others, it's worthwhile to find your way here, especially given how small Corniglia is.

We arrived in Corniglia on a Sunday morning by train. As we climbed the many steps to the Village, it started to rain. This beautiful little church was a great sanctuary from the weather - we stayed almost an hour admiring the simple beauty of the old stone structure. We lit a candle, gave a donation, and went on our... More

This Church is on the other side of town up high on the hill looking back down to the town offering nice views of Corniglia and the surrounds. This looked like the main church and although it still has a simple façade it was quite impressive inside.

To went to Corniglia just by train. Corniglia is in the middle of the mountain. This church is very beautiful. You have to see!

This Gothic style church with a clock and bell tower was built in 1334 and is located in the upper part of the village of Corniglia on the Italian Riviera, Liguria, Italy. Corniglia, perched 100 m above the sea, is the smallest of the five famous Cinque Terre towns and the only one without a harbor. The attractive façade has... More

This was clearly one of the best churches we have seen in Italy. The frescoes are amazing and the church oozes with history. If you are interested in churches this is well worth a visit
