We reached this church by coming up through the park, a very pleasant but uphill walk. The church is like many in this area, quite ornate.

While taking a hike in Durazzo Park at the top of the hill you find this church with a breathtaking view of the Ligurian Sea and Santa Margherita with beautiful gardens and sculptures!
