  • No comments to describe the beauty in its simplicity of the Church of St. Margaret of Antioch in Vernazza. The grey stones contrasts with the pastel colours of the houses, the blue sky and the blue of the sea. A cameo of rare beauty. Perched on a cliff overlooking the Marina. There are drapes or Renaissance paintings of landscapes to enrich the walls because the same open window overlooking the sea.

  • Beautiful church overlooking the Harbour and on the village square. Don't miss the Interior with three aisles divided by massive pillars. Not to be missed.
