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.

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.

Pleasant climb up to the church, also richly decorated but a tad less than Santa Margherita d'Antiochi (see my other review).

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!

A must see, just a few steps off the path, quite the unusual church worth the small deviation and guaranteed no line to get in
