Church of San Pietro
In the eastern most part of the Spezia Golf is the breathtaking town of Portovenere. The town takes its name from a temple erected in the roman times in honour of Venere Ericina, on the promontory where the church of San Pietro now stands.It is said that the little church of San Pietro, which is located on the promontory overlooking the Island of Palmaria, was built over the ancient temple of Venere Ericina, or over a slightly less ancient Palaeo-Christian church. In 1256, Portovenere helped Genova to reclaim Lerici from Pisa, and the church was said to have been erected as a thank-you from the Genevans. Built in the genevan-gothic style, the church was finally completed in 1277. The building consists of two parts; a twin lancet bell tower built of chequered black and white stone, and a rectangular building topped with a semicircular apse. The two areas are united by two pointed archways. The interior features a vaulted wooden ceiling and a presbytery divided into three chapels and covered by a pointed cross-vault ceiling.
