Chiesa di San Pietro is one of the symbols of the town of Porto Venere, in the Liguria region of Italy. The church was built in 1277 and stands atop a rocky point, providing spectacular views of Porto Venere and the Gulf of Poets. Designed in the typical Ligurian style with white-washed walls, the Church serves as a reminder of the region's distant connection to the Byzantine and Roman Empires. Visitors to the Church may enjoy panoramic views of the countryside and sea. If you're feeling brave, you may even scale the steep steps up to the bell tower for a better view! Just north of the Church, a picturesque harbour is filled with colorful fishing boats, and traditional restaurants offer fresh seafood caught daily in the nearby waters. Chiesa di San Pietro is the perfect place to take in the beauty and tranquility of Porto Venere.
