  • To see the Church, need to climb 200 meters on cool running up the track. Although the temple, from the perspective of a tourist, differs little from those in the area, it makes sense to climb. At least in order to admire the beautiful opening above the landscape.

  • Impressive place, overlooking the Bay, great views from the top. Can be reached on foot and along with the cemetery is worth a visit. Inside a crucifixion by Van Dyck

  • SIMPLE IS BEAUTIFUL AND THIS CHURCH IS EXACTLY THAT. BEYOND THE CHURCH I HAVE ENJOYED THE RELAXING WALK THROUGH THE PATH THAT TAKES YOU TO IT.
  • Go past the convent and enter the cemetery. Keep walking up and up and soon you'll have a view of all the five villages of Cinque Terra.
  • I love come and go in this haven of peace. I like to meet the last Capuchin monk who is the soul of this convent. Us also to appreciate the canvas of the Crucifixion attributed to Van Dick.

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.
