We explored this church after we checked into our hotel because it was only 5 mins away. After a steep climb, we found that the church was more or less one of the highest buildings in town and it faced a little piazzale that had a panoramic view of the town. I climbed up to a parapet (meant for the... More

If you have read my reviews you know that I like to visit old churches for the wonderful surprises you find inside them. This one is no exception. If you get the chance make sure you visit.

I love visiting churches and this one was unique and quite in keeping with the flavor of the town.... quaint and precious. The visit doesn't take a long time.

This church dates back from the early 1300's; it is a simple but beautiful place of worship that looks very austere compared to the places in Rome. It is at the top of the town of Manarola up a very steep hill, but well worth the climb. We enjoyed the town immensely, stopping in one of the gelaterias for a... More

Enjoying the small chapels/churches of Italy. The big grand duomo's of Orvieto and Florence are awe inspiring. But there is something sweet and peaceful of these small churches tucked away in the local communities. Chiesa di San Lorenzo is a perfect spot to stop and give thanks. La dolce Vita! Loving the life!

This whole village is beautiful. The Vineyard walk is a must if you go there. High on the hills that surrounding the village looking down at the harbor.

Stopped by this church on my way to get coffee and I was pleasantly surprised. It's small, but beautiful. It's not extremely ornate like other churches. It's simple, but very pretty.

Great hike up from the bottom of the town. There are wonderful views from the piazza in front of the church. Very spartan inside but that adds to its simple beauty.

Built in 1300's. Attended a Sunday service. Population in Manarola is 200. So, priest drives in from La Spezia for services. Simple church, but an incredible feeling of many years of deep devotion by the parishioners. A must eye when in Cinque Terre.
