This Church does not look anything special from the outside, then you go inside and see the beautiful decorations. A lovely peaceful place in a village bustling with tourists.

This church is in the center of Corniglia in a small piazza. It is kind of the focal point with restaurants and a fountain. Take the staircases on either side to a great viewing point of other towns in the Cinque Terra.
