One can imagine that this church is where the celebrations in this village occurs. The stripped façade was eye-catching. Small but beautiful.

This is a pretty church built in the Pisane style with a stripped façade and simple interior. It is worth a quick visit. It shares a small piazza with Oratorio della Confraternita dei Neri Mortis et Orationis.

I loved the unique striped facade and it was carried through to the inside of the church. The church is very nice inside and worth walking in and taking it in.

Always surprised & this one was no different. It had the unusual facade of white marble with black stripes of serpentine, I believe. Style was described as Genoese Gothic. The bell tower, in medieval times, was the 'watch tower'. A devastating flood in 2011 did...More

We visited this church during our stop in Monterosso. I love the stripes in the churches in the cinque terre! This church is small, but worth a short stop.

Lovely Church free to visit, just off the main square in the old Town. Rosone attributed to Pietro da Campiglio. Also has a 15th Century bell tower. Pretty place.

This is a nice little church that felt warm and inviting. We found the founding date 1307 on one of the marble columns. There's also an equally old wooden carved statue of St. Anthony. The façade had no marble, but a painted stripe look of...More
