Chiesa di Santa Margherita d'Antiochia - Santuario di Nostra Signora della Rosa

Reviewed 6 November 2017

Seems as if there are beautiful Cathedrals all over Italy, in almost every town. Each one more ornate than the last. Doors to this cathedral are large and stately and the inside really georgeous. Lighting candles in each one is becoming pricey!

Somehow though every church seems to have beggars at the doors. Not sure if it's a sign of all the refugees flooding in through Europe but it's impossible to avoid them.

This church is truly spectacular. You cannot miss it as you walk back into the town from the boat station. The inside is fantastic with beautiful crystal chandeliers and lots of gold leaf everywhere. You can here the bells ringing for the services and whilst we were there there was a funeral as well, rather more elaborate than an English one.
Well worth a visit.

When my wife and I were in Santa Margherita Ligure, Italy this October we visited the Basilica di Santa Margherita. We have been traveling in Europe for 45 years and would rank the cathedral as one of the most beautiful we have ever visited.

We love hearing the bells calling 20 minutes before the service is to start. We try to make at least one service while we are there.

A prime example of ornate Italian church architecture. A service was in progress so we couldn't venture all the way in but what we saw was stunning, especially the stained glass around the duomo. A very special space.
