Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Liguria / Italian Riviera / Cinque Terre / Vernazza / Historic Sites / Santa Margherita di Antiochia Church
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.

Non mi aspettavo una chiesa del genere. Dall'esterno non ti aspetti di salire delle scale per poter entrare nella chiesa (poi ho scoperto che quell'ingresso risulta recente, 19° sec).

Inside is beautiful in its simplicity: it's all in stone and almost bare. The columns are likewise in stone and on one side there are the real Windows overlooking the sea. The style is mixed: romantic and Baroque, but really quite simple. The Windows do not have Windows, but have added simple transparent glass: one of them was open and there was a pleasant breeze! The strangest thing in a church! The organ is located at the bottom and the columns of the presbytery hold up the belfry above. Outside, then, the square was refurnished with coloured pebbles and benches, really very nice and pleasant! A pleasant surprise!View original

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
