In the eastern part of the Cinque Terre there is Riomaggiore. It is a wonderful place, rich of Mediterranean colours and scents.
The city centre is made up of typical Genoese houses-towers and some small but interisting monuments. One of these is the Gothic St. John Baptist’s Church, built in 1340 for the bishop Antonio Fieschi. The facade is characterised by a white Carrara marble rose window (14th century).
To visit the Oratory of Our Lady of Assumption hosting a precious wooden statue representing the Virgin of chains and a triptych of the 15th century, the Oratory of St Rocco and the Oratory of St. Anthony the Abbot.
The beach of Riomaggiore is in the eastern part of the village, near the ferry dock. It is rocky and suggestive. You can get Canneto beach only by sea, since the pedestrian path is impassable and dangerous.
The best way to arrive at Cinque Terre is by ferry or train. But, if you prefer, you can also travel by car. There are some car parks but with fee and few parking spaces.
