THE CHURCH OF SAINT JOHN THE BAPTIST

The church was built between 1244 and 1307 in Ligurian Gothic style. The beautiful faade is decorated with white and green marble and introduces. It has a pointed arch between little marble column embellished with a rose window attributed to Matteo and Pietro from Campiglio. Like the churches of Vernazza and Corniglia, the inside narrows progressively towards the entrance. The bell tower crowned by merlons was originally a medieval defensive tower with a rectangular plant in green stone.
