I love visiting churches mainly to admire the architecture and décor. This one was no exception. Of key interest, though, was information on the floods and the impact of those on the church. They've certainly done a good job of bringing it back to its...More

In this quit place, my thought drowns, feelings of freedom of life; it has splendid striped facade, construct with white stone and green serpentine from a local quarry and is adorned by a beautiful rose window, in Gothic style. The ancient church of San Cristofero,...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.

It was strange that the same stone work was used throughout the entire region but it worked, as they were all lovely !! Interiors varied greatly but the colours were dominant. This was a 13th Century example and had a stunning Altar and other artifacts...More

Despite this church being the only one to view there was another church close by which for 1 euro you could go behind the alter and see how complex these buildings really were. Back to the Giovanni Battista church, this was worth the visit after...More

This Church is near the main square in old town. It was restored after the floods from 6 years or so ago. What I enjoyed the most was the openness and architecture also. It had a striped motif and a clock that seemed to be...More
