About Church Of San Giovanni Battista, Cinque Terre

One of the oldest churches of Cinque Terre region, the church of San Giovanni Battisa inspires your imagination with its art and architecture. Built in 1340 by Antonio Fieschi, bishop of Luni, this church has stood the tests of time and still graces the city with its presence. As you look at the façade, it will remind you of the construction style of the Maestri Antelami. Most of the art that you see inscribed here retains the original state, however, the church that you look today was widened in 1870 and its façade was renovated in neogothic style, a dominant architectural pattern of this period. Inside, there is a wooden crucifix of the Maragliano, a triptych on the right aisle, dedicated to the Antelami and the "Baptist's Preaching" attributed to Domenico Fiasella. These features will remind you of the medieval times.
