This attractive Oratory is found next to the Riomaggiore Castle, on Cerricò hill. It was built in 1480 after a plague and there is a carving of Saint Rocco which shows him having the disease. Inside the Oratory there is a triptych representing the Madonna with the Child and Saints.
Gayle and I climbed up here during our short hike around Riomaggiore. I'm a sucker for expansive hill top views and pretty churches. We go both here.
