Vernazza is a town and commune located in the province of La Spezia, Liguria, northwestern Italy. It is one of the five towns in the Cinque Terre region.

Vernazza is the fourth town heading north into the Cinque Terre. It has no car traffic (a road leads into a parking lot on the edge of the town) and remains one of the truest "fishing villages" on the Italian Riviera.

Main sights

*Church of "Santa Margherita d'Antiochia", begun in 1318. It has a nave and two aisles with an octagonal bell tower rising from the apse area.
*Doria Castle

Santuario di Nostra Signora di Reggio

About a half hour's steep walk above Vernazza sits the shrine of "Nostra Signora Di Reggio". The wide path that leads up to the shrine is punctuated with the Stations of the Cross. Around the shrine is a large shady open area, expansive views of the water below, as well as the hillside vineyards, and various statues of Mary and Joseph.
