Only the vaults in the main nave and the entrance portal from the north (rectory) to the church are neo-gothic. .

The original church from 1282, expanded in the neo-Gothic style in the 17th century, then in 1893. Inside, rich furnishings from the 16th-19th centuries, including: the main altar in the late Baroque style from 1729, a Renaissance triptych from around 1600. Worth watching, available.

Very beautiful and old church. The first mention of it was in 1282. The church burned down twice and was rebuilt each time. The first fire was in 1449. The second time the Church was burnt down during the Thirty Years' War and by 1671 it was completely restored again.

Manarola is a small town, a frazione of the comune of Riomaggiore. It is the second-smallest of the famous Cinque Terre towns frequented by tourists, with a population of 353.

Manarola may be the oldest of the towns in the Cinque Terre, with the cornerstone of the church, San Lorenzo, dating from 1338. The local dialect is Manarolese, which is marginally different from the dialects in the nearby area. The name 'Manarola' is probably a dialectical evolution of the Latin, 'magna rota'. In the Manarolese dialect this was changed to 'magna roea' which means 'large wheel', in reference to the mill wheel in the town.

Manarola's primary industries have traditionally been fishing and wine-making. The local wine, called Sciacchetrà, is especially renowned; references from Roman writings mention the high quality of the wine produced in the region.
