An old stone church
Nov 2019
From the train station we walked up the hill. Some parts are quite steep but short. At the top we saw an open court yard. There is and old stone church built in 1338. The interior of the church is simply decorated but serene and tranquil.  Across the church is the bell clock tower. Behind the tower is a beautiful view of part of Manarola. To the right is the vineyards layer by layer covering the hill. I saw the Nativity scene set up there with more than hundreds of figurines, like Mary, the baby Jesus, and Joseph, the shepherds, angels, stars, and various animals set up on the entire hill. I heard this Nativity scene will light up on December 8th. Unfortunately we were there 3 weeks early, but at least we had a glimpse of it.
Happy Travelling!

14th-century Church
Sep 2019
When you climb to the top of the hill you will find the main historic monument of importance in Manarola - the 14th century Church of Saint Lorenzo, with an ancient bell tower. Great views of the town from here.

Simple village church makes you think about the inhabitants and their heritage.

At the head of the village with relatively few visitors, worth the walk up the hill to see the interior of the little church, the views and the various shops and small cafes in the area, have a drink at the Cantina Nessun Dorma and rest awhile before carrying on walking!

A lovely little church at the top of Manarola. You have to climb a mega hill to get there but the views are amazing.
A peaceful place to visit.

For diehard church lovers only
May 2019 • Couples
This is just another local church with no significance. The square in front of the church is not big enough for you to step back to take a pciture without distortion. Same with the detached bell tower. As a matter of fact, the bell tower actually looks better when viewed from afar. The adornments inside the church are just enough to make it not looking barren. However the view of the village near the bell tower is pretty good. Come here for the view and use the bell tower as a guidepost.

church and tower
Apr 2019 • Friends
What I found impressive here is the disconnection of the church with its tower forming a place in between where people meet and talk or just walk by. I like the church and the composition as a whole.

Beautiful and peaceful
Apr 2018 • Couples
This is a lovely, peaceful Church in the small village. It is great to look in and rest and pray. It is beautiful despite not being elaborately decorated like some of the other Churches in Italy.

Church of San Lorenzo
Jul 2018 • Business
All the churches in the Cinque Terre are lovely. All the churches in Italy are lovely! The Church of San Lorenzo is a quaint, beautiful church in Manarola. Construction dates back to the 14th century. These medieval churches are so steeped in history that it is a pleasure to walk inside, enjoy the peacefulness and simple beauty of the building. The church is a short walk up the hill in the village near the clock tower. The streets are a little quieter than in the main village.

Worth a visit if you're in town!

It's a small church in the middle of the town. We were walking past it and took a moment to explore the interior. Glad we did.

Dedicated to St Lawrence, the patron saint of The Cinque Terre
Nov 2018 • Couples
Built in 1338, the church contains two altar piece paintings from the unnamed Master of the Cinque Terre. The stone ceiling is painted with he image of St Lawrence who was martyred by being roasted on his grill. There is a bell tower on the left and great views from this vantage point.
