Santa Margherita d'Antiochia, Vernazza

Santa Margherita d'Antiochia, Vernazza

Right down at the water, next to the tourists laying on the beach, the small fishing boats, and the main piazza is the 14th century church of Santa Margherita d'Antiochia.

I like the perspective here. It really shows you the hills that surround the villages in the Cinque Terre. There wasn't much room to build here but they did; carving a life out of growing grapes, making wine and fishing. I can think of worse ways to spend a thousand years: the village itself can be traced back to somewhere near the year 1000.

Every time I type something like that, my head nearly explodes. It's unbelievable for me to visit places with a history like that. The church, which is much newer than the town, is still hundreds of years older than the county I come from.

I'm really undecided if I like the colour version of this photo or the black and white one. You can check out the black and white one if you hover over the red "+" symbol that is under the image title. If you have the time and inclination, I'd love to hear your opinion on the matter. You can do that by clicking on "add comment" near the bottom of the page.
