Enjoying the small chapels/churches of Italy. The big grand duomo's of Orvieto and Florence are awe inspiring. But there is something sweet and peaceful of these small churches tucked away in the local communities. Chiesa di San Lorenzo is a perfect spot to stop and give thanks. La dolce Vita! Loving the life!

This whole village is beautiful. The Vineyard walk is a must if you go there. High on the hills that surrounding the village looking down at the harbor.

Stopped by this church on my way to get coffee and I was pleasantly surprised. It's small, but beautiful. It's not extremely ornate like other churches. It's simple, but very pretty.

Great hike up from the bottom of the town. There are wonderful views from the piazza in front of the church. Very spartan inside but that adds to its simple beauty.

Built in 1300's. Attended a Sunday service. Population in Manarola is 200. So, priest drives in from La Spezia for services. Simple church, but an incredible feeling of many years of deep devotion by the parishioners. A must eye when in Cinque Terre.

Set in a square at the top of the village this is a beautiful old church dating back to 1338. The separate tower chimes out the time every half hour. The priest is thoughtful enough to stop chiming at 21:00 but he does resume with an early morning wake up call at 07:00.

We had breathtaking hike that led us to to this charming church in between small farms and vineyards. Worth hiking the Cinque Terra to find gems like this one.
