When in Portovenere make the walk to this gem. Also, nearby is Byron's grotto, a beautiful vista of the Ligurian sea.

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.
