    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 :-)

    all churches in Italy are amazing but this one is special. Maybe it is because everyone is looking at the towers no one comments on this church. take a few minutes and see the inside. it is beautiful ...  more »
  • 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

It's hard to go wrong with accommodations in Cinque Terre, home to some of the most charming hotels and bed and breakfasts in the country. Choosing among them depends largely on what you want most from your trip. Consider spending a restful vacation on the hilltop to enjoy the famous ocean views, or plant yourself somewhere closer to the shoreline in Riomaggiore for easy access to beaches. If you expect to spend lots of time exploring side streets and local shops, opt for accommodations along one of the main streets in any of the villages. Though it can be difficult to find inexpensive lodgings here, there are some more affordable options in Manarola, the smallest of the five villages, and Monterosso. You can even stay at a hostel in the national park if you want to be close to nature.
