The small village has taken its name from the little stream “Vernazzola”, that once flowed along the town centre and has recently been covered in order to realize via Roma, the streets that connects the little harbor with the station.
The history of Vernazza main church, Saint Margherita di Antiochia, built next to the seaside, dates back to 1300.
