Portovenere, church of San Pietro

In ancient times on the site of the church of San Pietro stood a temple dedicated to the goddess Venus, hence the name Portovenere. The belltower was also a defensive tower. On the right-hand side of the church it is possible to reach a Romanesque loggia with a breathtaking view of the coast towards the Cinque Terre.
