Oratory of the Disciplinati of Manarola
Church in Manarola
Dating back to the fourteenth century, the Disciplinanti congregation was dedicated to safeguarding the vulnerable. Situated in Manarola, this oratory is located in the upper area of the town’s square, where the San Lorenzo parish church also stands. Originating in the fifteenth century, it is alternatively referred to as the oratory of the Santissima Annunziata or degli Azzurri.
Characterized by its gabled roof, this building boasts a facade of understated elegance, entirely covered in a yellowish plaster. A small access stairway leads to a straightforward stone portal crowned by a lunette, while a framed tympanum accommodates a rounded window.
On the northern side, three windows invite natural light to illuminate the interior, whereas a small caruggio is situated on the southern side.
