Does it matter if you're catholic or not? For me - never. I always like to see the insides of architecture and this piece surprised me!!! Just go and see for yourself:) It is really amazing inside...

Not a must-see, but worth peeking in if you're in Manarola. The church is up a very steep road from the train station, and you can have a beautiful view of the town and the sea from outside.

This church dedicated to the Nativity of the Virgin Mary was built in 1338 and right on the main square of Manarola. It is not as intricate as other Italian churches but still pleasant to visit.

This church is a must see. It is very old with a lot of history. Walking to it from the train station, you get quite the workout as it is at the top of the hill and please remove your hat when entering any church...More

Not a must see, but a nice little church with a beautiful rose window and lovely marble interior. There are nice paintings. It's lovely, and amazing to see such a beautiful church in this little town.

This church is dated from the 14th century, its simple and small, with a small square outside where you can have nice views from Manarola and the sea.

I have seen a lot of churches but none like this one. The black and white is simply amazing and beautiful. It's a must to visit.

We only saw this church from the outside as we did not have time to visit inside. It looked rather nice and if you have the time and the inclination then you could venture inside.

A short, but up a very steep hill walk is the church. It's beautiful outside and inside as well as a gorgeous view of the village below.

I remember seeing the mass schedule pasted on the noticeboard inside the church near the entrance. I didn't note down the timing but I think it should not be very different from the mass timings of other churches in Italy... More
