This church dominates the lower part of Monterosso, with its striped motif, and solid construction. The clock seems to be on time, so I guess its well maintained. The interior is worth a short visit, it is neither austere or ornate, but it speaks for the village. For a fishing village, I'm sure that he tower of this building has been a landmark and relief for many returning sailors, and a place to respect and honour those lost at sea.

The facade of green and white marble stripes is particularly interesting and at the top the rose window. Worth a look inside too where there are also stripes on the arches and pillars.
Directly next door is the Oratory of the Confraternita dei Neri which has a somewhat similar striped facade. But though the Church is built in the Gothic style the Oratory is built in the Baroque style. Both are worth a look if nearby.

we walked right by this the first time we looked for it, hiding in plain sight if you will. We are always amazed by how interesting all the churches in Italy are, especially many in the Cinque Terra, this one is no exception. If you are in the old section and have a spare few minutes it's worth your time.

This church is really amazing despite being small and it is worth to visit and one must not confuse himself since next to it there is Oratorio della Confraternita dei Neri Mortis et Orationis which has a similar facade to it.

I really like the black and white marble. We also saw the display of flowers talked about by the other reviewer. Well worth a short visit.
