  • As it is just next to the swimming resort site by the sea, it gives extra spiritual beauty to the surrounding.
  • This old church dates back from the 13th century . It stands there facing the ocean like a guardian for Vernazza. The walls and the ceiling are darkened and only a small statue is dedicated to Santa Marguarita
