Santa Margherita Di Antiochia Church - Review

The stunning waterfront of Vernazza is framed by a small church which is built in Gothic-Lingurian style. Built in 1318, this beautiful church is known as Santa Magherita di Antiochia Church. You can locate the church from a distance by seeing its 40 meter tall octagonal tower that almost touches the skyline. Legend says, the bones of a finger of the hand of Santa Margherita were found in a wooden box near the shore. People staying in that region during that period decided to build a church to honor Santa where now the neighborhood islet stands. However, because of heavy storm and rough sea waves, the relic disappeared and reappeared in the same location after few days. Such instances have made the place holy for the people of Vernazza.

  • You’ll gasp audibly when entering Santa Margherita’s small yet lavish baroque church, not just at the truly dazzling array of gold leaf, frescoes, chandeliers and stained glass, but also at the sheer serendipity of it being here at all.

  • Great place to visit if you're in the area!

  • Beautiful, reverent place.

  • Nota anche come Santuario di Nostra Signora della Rosa, è una chiesa seicentesca imponente e centralissima, situata in piazza Caprera. L' interno è tipicamente e riccamente barocco. Una sola opera pittorica è commentata in modo adeguato: lo sposalizio mistico di S. Caterina dipinto da Valerio Castello nel 1644-45. Le altre opere pittoriche e scultoree sono accompagnate da schede artistiche illeggibili a causa della posizione in cui sono collocate. Peccato.

  • È la chiesa centrale di Santa Margherita, conosciuta anche come Basilica della Madonna della Rosa. Per me che sono nato a Santa rappresenta il posto dove, da bambino, ho preso comunione e cresima, ho partecipato alla scuola di catechismo, ho frequentato con altri amichetti e compagni i locali, insomma ha il dolce sapore di un ricordo lontano ma bello della mia infanzia. Non posso dare che 5 stelle!
