Portovenere is a town and municipality (municipality) located on the Ligurian coast of Italy in the province of La Spezia. It comprises the three villages of Fezzano, Le Grazie and Porto Venere, and the three islands of Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto. In 1997 Porto Venere and the villages of the Cinque Terre were designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
The Gothic Church of St. Peter, consecrated in 1198. It was built over to pre-existing 5th century Palaeo-Christian church, which had rectangular plan and semicircular apse. The new part, from the 13th century, is marked externally by white and black stripes.
The Romanesque church of St. Lawrence, erected in 1098 by the Genoese. It is probably the site of ancient temple dedicated to Jupiter. The church was damaged by fire in 1340 and by the Aragonese attack in 1494, and was further restored in 1582.
The Doria Castle with the walls around the historic center.
The Grotta dell'Arpaia (now collapsed), known as Byron's Grotto, from the English poet Byron swam across the gulf of La Spezia to San Terenzo to visit Shelley in Lerici, in 1822.
The medieval nucleus of Le Grazie is set around the 14th-century Church of Our Lady of the Graces; nearby is a medieval convent, which once belonged to the Olivetans, and the remains of the 1st century ECB Roman villa of Varignano.
Finds from recent excavations in the villa are held in the Antiquarium of the Roman Villa of Varignano in Porto Venere.
In Fezzano the medieval alleyways are noteworthy, along with the church of St. John the Baptist (1740) and the recently restored Villa Cattaneo.
