Cinque Terre (Riomaggiore)

Cinque Terre (Riomaggiore), Cinque Terre, Italy (B)

After taking the train from Manarola we exit the train station at the most southern of the five villages, Riomaggiore. From the station walk toward the pedestrian tunnel.

At the end of the pedestrian tunnel turn left on to the via Colombo where you will find most of the options for dining in Riomaggiore. 

Exit the church and face back down the hill toward the sea. Look for the archway to your right. It is shown in the picture above.

Enter the archway, as this is the way to the Post Office and the Church of San Giovanni Battista of Riomagiore.

Inside there are a number of preserved works of art. One that can be seen in the above photo is the wooden Crucifix by Italian sculptor Anton Maria Maragliano (1664 - 1739). We also notice the Tabernacle light is lit! 

As you exit the church stand with your back to the front door. Just ahead is the path to the castle. There will be two options. Take the path to the right up the stairs shown in the picture above.

At the foot of the stairs take a look off to your left at the town of Riomaggiore (see picture below). Somewhere among those vineyards is a trail up the side of that hill that leads to five sanctuaries. We actually did try to find the trail head but did not have any luck. ......
