Chiesa di San Francesco

Church Cinque Terre, Italy

Built among the ruins of the Village Chiesa di San Francesco

Catholic churches have been erected in honor of Saint Francis in many cities of the world across the centuries and Vernazza is no exception. Saint Francis of Assisi is much loved throughout Italy. He founded the monastic mendicant order which preached asceticism. This monastery was built in Vernazza in the XVII century, although the quadrangular tower and the supporting walls that form part of it were built hundreds of years before.
