Follow the Main Street up to the top of the town, here you will find the church and square. The church only takes about 10 min to look around but worth the effort , nice views from the square.

This is a very beautiful church inside. I wasn't with a tour or anything, so I can't say much about it's history. It is easy to stop in and light some candles, take a break from shopping!

Manarola is a great Cinque Terre town, but this church is quite ordinary compared to the atmosphere and views of the area. It is worth a minute only to look in the church.

I visited this chapel today, up in the hills above Manarola. The stained glass window is a feature from the inside and the outside. When you step inside its cool interior, you find a gentle, country chapel with lovely frescoes, and a serene and welcoming...More

Pretty special little church, worth the hike up the hill. Loved that their bell woke me every morning, time to get up and see beautiful cirque Terre.

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.

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
