Fodor's Review

This 13th-century Gothic church is built on the site of an ancient pagan shrine, on a formidable solid mass of rock above the Grotto Arpaia. With its black-and-white-striped exterior, it is a spectacular landmark recognizable from far out at sea and upon entering the village. There's a fantastic view of the Cinque Terre coastline from the front porch of the church.
