Beautiful church with a very humble appearance, we passed by this church and were not going to enter since there was nobody around it. It turned out to be really nice in the inside. The church is dedicated to the Nativity of the Virgin Mary, known as well as church of Saint Lawrence, patron of the village. It was built... More

We explored this church after we checked into our hotel because it was only 5 mins away. After a steep climb, we found that the church was more or less one of the highest buildings in town and it faced a little piazzale that had a panoramic view of the town. I climbed up to a parapet (meant for the... More

This church dates back from the early 1300's; it is a simple but beautiful place of worship that looks very austere compared to the places in Rome. It is at the top of the town of Manarola up a very steep hill, but well worth the climb. We enjoyed the town immensely, stopping in one of the gelaterias for a... More

Enjoying the small chapels/churches of Italy. The big grand duomo's of Orvieto and Florence are awe inspiring. But there is something sweet and peaceful of these small churches tucked away in the local communities. Chiesa di San Lorenzo is a perfect spot to stop and give thanks. La dolce Vita! Loving the life!

Stopped by this church on my way to get coffee and I was pleasantly surprised. It's small, but beautiful. It's not extremely ornate like other churches. It's simple, but very pretty.
