I visited Manarola for only half a day during a cruise on the Med. It was really one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen! Make sure to walk up to Church of San Lorenzo. The views are worth it, although it is quite steep. In addition, also walk up to little cemetary that is located towards the right... More

A great church with a lot of history. We went to Sunday morning mass....couldn't understand a word of it, but enjoyed it.

It's amazing the number of interesting little churches there are in these villages and this one is no exception. It is high up in the town. The bell tower is separated from the church as was often done due to the movement and vibration cause by the ringing of large bells.

I enjoyed the wonderful playing of Ensemble Giglio Armonico. In the evening concert perfectly combines timbres of two flutes, soprano and organ.

Truly beautiful inside and lovely outside...well worth the short climb up the hill! The history surrounding Manarola and the other Cinque Terre villages is just amazing and their churches are indicative of this...loved it!

Another beautiful old church, with its bell tower sitting separately across the piazza. It’s worth going up here and then taking the path on the downhill side of the church that winds behind the houses and back to the bottom end of the town.

It is a grand entrance to our hike up to the vineyards that has sweeping views of Manarola and nearby towns.

On sunday morning, I heard lovely singing by a choir. So pleasant to hear. The church itself was very simple and I liked it, after all the adornments of the large cathedrals in Rome.

This Beautiful small church is one of Manarola attractions. All of the Cinque Terre have centenary churchs to be observed.

This church is a local landmark. It is used by the community and it's a very small church since it's a very small community. This isn't Florence... it's a little town carved into a rock. The locals don't have the need or resources to build a duomo or cathedral. The church was locked the entire time I was there so... More
