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 beautiful church that locals often visit. Outside one hears the beautiful songs from within. The Bell Tower plays every half-hour between 7-22. On Friday at 17 mixed Bell tones with music in a wonderful mix, probably informs you that the work week is over and now it's the weekend.
