Santa Margherita di Antiochia Church, Vernazza

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. Planning Cinque Terre trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • Very pretty church by the side of the sea, delightful to see...
  • My favourite among the rest of cinque terre stops 😊
  • 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.
  • I DIDN'T LIKE THE STONY INTERIOR TOO MUCH. I APPRECIATE HOW THE CHURCH CONTRIBUTES TO THE GREAT VIEWS OF VERNAZZA BY GIVING CHARACTER TO THIS LOVELY LITTLE TOWN.
  • Church is meh but behind it is a great swimming and picnic spot
