  • At first it looked more like a church, however, the detail in front and the frames make it a location that needs to be seen up close even quickly.

  • In my wanderings to Italy and the world still lacked the Church that he promoted the "eccellezza certificate" conquered with TA. Well, here we are! The Church is located on the highest pèunto of Monterosso and to reach it you must take a few steps on foot. Overall I didn't find it particularly interesting during the visit I could hear a friar who trained singing:)

  • 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.
  • For a long time will remember the Cinque Terra region and this church! Really enjoyed

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.
