    Is a small church nestled right near the port, but seems to be for the people of this village are important. Floods hit villages in the 11/2011 village of damaged buildings more than half, but had a great deal of harm was none at all, taking refuge in this church this church cherishing the strong people, I heard that.

    Beautiful church at the foot of the village, just at the edge of the sea. From the top of the tower you have a view on this church

  • A must see for lovers of the Sea and Church Architecture. Truly a beautiful place of worship hidden in an absolute gem of a town.
  • I DIDN'T LIKE THE STONY INTERIOR TOO MUCH. I APPRECIATE HOW THE CHURCH CONTRIBUTES TO THE GREAT VIEWS OF VERNAZZA BY GIVING CHARACTER TO THIS LOVELY LITTLE TOWN.

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.
