Monterosso/The Churc of Saint John the Baptist
 
This church, dedicated to Saint John the Baptist, is on the left side of the main road entering the older sector of Monterosso. The construction began in 1282 and was completed in 1307, 25 years later. The building is of a basilica type plan that includes three naves and two aisles. The fa├žade is of a Ligurian/Pisan gothic style and is quite seductive. It is ornated with white and black marbles and the main portal is surmounted by a fresco portraying Saint John baptising Christ and directly above this there is an elegant rose window, attributed to Matteo and Pietro Campiglio. Of great interest inside the church is a triptych portraying the Virgin and Child between two saints. This painting is unsigned but attributed to the school of Giotto. The square medieval bell tower is crowned with battlements and double Gothic style arches on each of the four sides.
