A very memorable small church in Corniglia. Great perch upon a hilltop overlooking Corniglia. Well kept church to visit or come for prayer or services. Worth the short walk off the main plaza up the steps past the market. Off the main tourist pathway, so...More

This small church, more like a chapel, is in the middle of the quaint town of Corniglia. It is up several steps from the main lane and surrounded by restaurants with inside and outside seating. It is not a fancy church but a peaceful place...More

This is another well-maintained church in Corniglia town. When I was there, they were having some small renovations work and there is a nice wall painting if you look up to the ceiling inside the church. It is a very peaceful place and you can...More

This church was lovely. Very simple when compared to other churches but it had such a comforting atmosphere. Very hard to describe but I was so pleased I went in.

The Church is small and there is a statue in front. There wasn't much to see, but it is one of the sightseeing here.

This little chapel is beside what they call the "castle" in Riomaggiore. Neither - I would say - is worth the climb. Having seen hundreds of incredible cathedrals, this is just a little chapel, really, and the "castle"....really? It was unremarkable, but the view is...More
