  • Pretty special little church, worth the hike up the hill. Loved that their bell woke me every morning, time to get up and see beautiful cirque Terre.  more »
  • The Church of San Lorenzo is a tiny little church but characteristic and I regret not having never had the opportunity to go there during a mass

  • Gray brick Church is very simple both the interior and the façade. Rosette and small details of the angle above the door.

  • As a small fishing village, it is commendable to have such a church. The church was built in 14th century, very old. Different from the metropolis of Church, less luxurious, more quaint.

  • The Church was consecrated in 1338 (according to a plaque on the façade) and dedicated to the birth of Mary. Until the 16th century was the dedication to San Lorenzo, hitherto worshipped in nearby Volastra. The highlight is definitely the facade (built in local sandstone) in which is inserted a wonderful rose window of 1375. Beautiful frame with flower motives, although impoverished by the loss of star signs at one time placed in the spaces between the arches of the balusters. The Interior was divided into three aisles to underline the importance of the Church for the community of Manarola. Among the many works of art include a triptych tempera on Oak of 1480 (on the wall behind the altar) that depicts the Madonna and child with four saints and-near the entrance-the baptismal font dating from 1475.

  • The Bell Tower of the Church is like a lighthouse which is located far from the Centre of Manarola. Beautiful construction.
