Vernazza, as Monterosso, is probably the most crowded village of Cinque Terre, not only filled with locals but also with tourists from all over the world.Is difficult to choose which of the five villages is the most beautiful, but Vernazza is certainly enchanting and captivating: built on a rock, defeats storms and waves; the tower of the Doria Castle being its guardian.The Doria Castle is located on the promontory, which looks onto “La Marina di Vernazza”, the only natural small harbour of the Cinque Terre. It was already important during the Republic of Genoa (XII century), and it is still a landmark today for young people and tourists to have a pleasant evening walk or a local ice-cream. Vernazza, differently from the other villages, had a lively historical and economic past. The traces of this can be seen throughout the village, in its valuable architectural and ornamental elements.The church of Santa Margherita di Antiochia, whose foundations are almost at water level, is situated in the small port, and, looking out of its small windows, your gaze will get lost in the clear blue sea. The Friary and the majestic Cloister remind us of a pure Renaissance atmosphere.A visit to the small fishing village is a journey in time, accompanied by delicious food and a colourful scenery.
