A walk up the hill to see spectacular views of the town, castle, and sea. On the way, you can appreciate Lord Byron's ghetto.

We walked up here after arriving on the ferry from Cinque Terre and the setting was stunning. The church itself is preserved well and an interesting site to visit. It also offers beautiful views of the surroundings.

There are many steps to reach the church. The church has some unique features, especially the figures that come out of the walls. It is in an amazing part of Italy.

We love to just sit in this absolutely lovely and extremely charming church to meditate and realise life is beautiful. Do throw a coin for luck out of the window on the pillar outside.

We walked up to the church and its beautiful. We could only peak in the windows because they were decorating for a wedding. I'm sure that was a beautiful wedding!

This hill top has always had a temple or a church on it. In 1256, this church was built to replace the Roman temple to Venus that stood there. The black and white rock used in it's construction is 'Portoro Marble'. It's a dark veined...More
