  • I made a quick visit to this simple old church of Saint Margherita. The building is old and the feel within the church is one of great solitude and peace. Unlike all the massive Churches and basilica,...  more »
  • Another church! Another excellent site to visit. As I have said before churches are a great place for a little peace and quite. An a great place to see art, icons, and Architecture. 
  • This church is very simple and tiny, but Vernazza is a small village, the Church is large and imposing. In addition, it is very nice inside and out and, being at the edge of the sea, makes the view simply, linda. You can enter at certain times.
