A simple stroll around the town brought us here unassuming outside but the inside was a complete contrast with amazing decor and gold inlays throughout the inside. Probably when of the most attractive we saw on our trip and worth seeking out if in all!

Like all churches in Italy, the power, and thus wealth, of the church is always on show with the exquisite work carried out on the inside of the buildings. You really cannot walk past this place, you have to go inside, as its almost humble exterior is turned on its head by the lavish interior.

The sanctuary of this church is truly remarkable. Catholics and non Catholics alike will appreciate the beauty of the interior, as lovely as any in Italy. The chiesa is located on Piazza Caprera right in the center of town.

Chiesa di Santa Margherita d'Antiochia, is situated in a lovely Piazza 2 minutes from my hotel (Jolande), and a short walk from the harbour. This is a beautiful, peaceful haven to sit and enjoy the surroundings, Alters, statues and stained glass windows. My hotel being so close to the Basilica allowed me to attend Mass each morning, an added bonus... More

We got to see the statue that they take around the town for the feast day complete with canopy and poles for carrying it. The square is a nice place to wander around, lots of little shops.

This is a lovely church in the heart of this lovely boat ride away from Portofino. Surprising and serene with much to see in such a small area. Somehow I expected something much more like the old Churches in Umbrian villages instead of this glorious old world church with its opulent decor, statues, stain glass and ceilings. It's right in...

Very ornate, paintings on ceilings and walls, crystal chandeliers. This is definitely one to see if you love pretty things! Like a little Sistine Chapel!
