Santa Margherita di Antiochia Church represents a place of peace and prayer from the 14th century. Originally built on remains from the 11th century in the Ligurian Gothic style right next to the sea, the church features three aisles and an impressive octagonal bell tower. Legends says that the relics of Saint Margherita were washed on shore and that is the place where the church stands. Enter the church, light a candle, and admire the stone architecture and the paintings inside.

A must see for lovers of the Sea and Church Architecture. Truly a beautiful place of worship hidden in an absolute gem of a town.

Where to stay in Cinque Terre
It's hard to go wrong with accommodations in Cinque Terre, home to some of the most charming hotels and bed and breakfasts in the country. Choosing among them depends largely on what you want most from your trip. Consider spending a restful vacation on the hilltop to enjoy the famous ocean views, or plant yourself somewhere closer to the shoreline in Riomaggiore for easy access to beaches. If you expect to spend lots of time exploring side streets and local shops, opt for accommodations along one of the main streets in any of the villages. Though it can be difficult to find inexpensive lodgings here, there are some more affordable options in Manarola, the smallest of the five villages, and Monterosso. You can even stay at a hostel in the national park if you want to be close to nature.
