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.

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.
