Lerici. Portovenere, and
Cinque Terre

Portovenere

On the western side of La Spezia gulf is Portovenere, a picturesque fishing village from Roman times.

Etymologically, the name (Portus Veneris) would seem to come from a temple dedicated to Venus. Legend has it that the goddess of beauty was enchanted by so much splendour. Facing Portovenere are the small Palmaria Islands, Tino and Tinetto, full of grottoes, reachable by tourist boats.

 

To visit are the Church of St. Peter (1277) built on the headland that is reached through the Byron Grotto, the Doria Castle and the St. Lawrence Church.
