In the Middle Ages, the western coast of Apennine peninsula was exposed to constant attacks of North African pirates. These attacks were especially directed towards, at that time, rich Republic of Genoa and Vernazza was part of that republic. Doria castle was built in the 15th century as a lookout tower to protect the village from attacks of pirates.
