  • This 14th century Gothic church is the main historical sight in Vernazza. You can’t miss it. It is located on a rocky platform right beside the colourful harbour and every Vernazza tourist ends up...

  • It is certainly one of the gems of Vernazza. It is a catholic church built in the 11th century with access from a secondary entrance, located to the side of the apse, directly from the small square...

  • Beautiful little church located right along the coast of the small village of vernazza, so much quieter inside the church compared to the bustling crowds outside. There was a cleaner there making sure it was nice and clean which it was!
  • A marvelous place full of romantic vibes and seafood aroma!!! The whole village is truly stunning.
  • A decent church, but honestly nothing compared to the basilicas of major Italian cities.
  • Just enjoy the moment, this place will take u for another part of time!
  • Very pretty church by the side of the sea, delightful to see...
