Nice little church to see and admire, located above the harbour you need to walk up a few stairs but nice and easy climb.

Church is not to see visually from the outside with inside have beautiful architecture and colours.

Off the beaten track, but adjacent to the park surrounding Villa Durazzo, the church was a haven of calm and tranquility in an otherwise bustling Santa Margherita. Perched on the edge of a hill, overlooking the sea, it is definitely worth the walk up to explore the area.

It was worth the climb up a wide staircase from the marina promenade. Smallish, but ornate, with a statue garden and villa next door.

This imposing looking church really stands out as you approach Santa Margherita Ligure by boat. As you climb the steps to enter the church, the inside is equally magnificient. There are panels of painting on the ceiling which exxtend all the way to the altar. The altar itself is recessed from the congregation in its own room with large paintings on either side of the wall. Even though this is not a huge church, it is not that small, and it imparts a feeling of awe as you marvel at the intricate layout.

Adjoins the Villa Durazzo and gardens. Can be entered from there or by the stairs leading up from the waterfront, which also pass the little Oratorio di Sant'Erasmo. It is easier to go up to the Villa Durazzo through the garden grounds, visit the church and exit via the downhill stairs.

The interior was far grander than we had expected, and much more light than the interiors of many other churches, in part because of the marble, gold and many chandeliers.

It is really beautiful and when we visited there were no other people there at all.

Combine a visit with the Villa Durazzo and gardens next door.

Stunning church next to Villa Durazzo overlooking the Med below. Well maintained and is in the style of the region. Typical dark interior which highlights the stained glass windows.

This was such a surprise and hidden away, well worth the climb,.the church inside was just a amazing and we were luckily recommended here by the information centre in town, it's special and the views were spectacular. We caught the bus from Portofino and were so pleased with the town, the bus ride alone was worth the E5 return as it hugs the coast and the view is fabulous.

This is a nice church a short climb up from the harbor. It is worth the trip.

The original structure dates from 974 and was part of an abbey. The Baroque church you see today is due to renovations made in the 17th century.

The interior is composed of three naves, with ten side altars. The frescos are from the 19th century

The main altar features a wooden statue of the Madonna della Lettera. According to tradition, in 1783, when a terrible earthquake devastated Messina, the statue of the Madonna was on a ship in the port and it fell into the sea. After twenty days it was washed ashore in Santa Margherita. This was considered a miracle because it was against the prevailing currents.

It is not that easy to get to and it takes a little work to climb up but once you arrive and take in the beauty you decide it was worth it.
