Church of San Lorenzo
A medieval church suspended between sea, sky and rock over an ancient port.The church of San Lorenzo in Varigotti dominates, from above, a natural harbour that is protected by the Crena promontory that overlooks the sea. This bay for centuries, currently known as the “baia dei Saraceni” (The Saracens Bay), offered shelter to the ships that sailed the Mediterranean routes.
It’s a part of the coastline, dominated by steep mountains, in which suggestions linked to a sea landscape, sky and rock merge with historic secular long events.
The church can be visited during visiting hours or on request, the visit is organized by the “Amici di San Lorenzo” Association.
The visit is part of the “open art” project that is promoted by MUDIF.
