Santa Margherita Ligure is a comune (municipality) in the province of Genoa in the Italian region Liguria, located about 35km southeast of Genoa, in the Tigullio traditional area.Santa Margherita Ligure borders the following municipalities: Camogli, Portofino, Rapallo.It has a port, used for both tourism and fishing activities. Part of comune territory is included in the Regional Natural Park of Portofino.HistoryThe presence of a Roman settlement has not been definitely proven. The burgh, known as Pescino, was devastated by Rothari in 641 and by the Saracens in the 10th century. Later it was a fief of the Fieschi family until 1229, when it was acquired by the Republic of Genoa.In 1432 it was attacked by the fleet of Venice and in 1549, together by Rapallo, by that of Turgut.In 1813, under the Napoleonic domination, the two burghs of Pescino and Corte were unified as Porto Napoleone. Two years later it was annexed to the Kingdom of Sardinia as the commune of Santa Margherita Ligure. In 1861 it became part of the newly unified Kingdom of Italy.
