2022-08-10-SAN-LORENZO

Patronal festival of San Lorenzo in Manarola on August 10. Here is the schedule of events.

9 p.m. – Procession through the streets of the town with the effigy of the saint.
AUGUST 10 and 11 – Ingenuity Market in Capellini Square from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

What you can see in the parish church of San lorenzo:
Rosette: the sculpture that graces the main facade of the Church, is embellished with twelve colinnas with forged capitals. At the top of the crown you will be able to make out human and lion heads. The work was carried out in 1375, as the plaque below the rose window reports.
Marble Tabernacle: In the right aisle, toward the apse, you will find a small tabernacle intended to house the holy oil. At the top you will see a bas-relief depicting the martyrdom of St. Lawrence. This lunette, until not long ago, graced the entrance of the church but, due to obvious deterioration, was moved.
Triptychs: on the High Altar you can admire a fine triptych depicting the Madonna and Child between St. Matthew, St. John the Baptist, St. Catherine of Alexandria, and St. Lawrence. While in the left aisle is a wooden triptych with St. Lawrence between St. Anthony Abbot and St. Bernard. Both works are dated to the early 1500s and are attributed to the Master of the Cinque Terre.
