  • It's all in the title. I'm not an expert. For those who seek cool in August, I think he's heavier inside than outside :-)

  • 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.

Where to stay in Cinque Terre

Each of the five villages offer plenty of options--typically guesthouses or bed and breakfasts housed in brightly colored houses offering views over the water. If you want to explore Cinque Terre over several days, spend the first night in Riomaggiore--the most accessible of the five villages--then stay in Corniglia or Vernazza on your second night. That way, you can explore Manarola and Monterosso on day trips. You'll struggle to find budget accommodations in Cinque Terre, so expect to pay a premium and plan ahead.
