The Parish Church of Santa Margherita of Antioch is located in Vernazza and its original structure dates back to the 11th century, whereas other parts of the building are documented for the year 1318, when they were erected under the Genovese rule. The building was erected on a dramatically steep outcrop, yielding a scenic view while enjoying the set of a high backdrop in the vicinity of the sea.

The church is overlooked by an impressively high tower, and its façade is flanked by three columns embellished with mullioned windows. As far as the interior is concerned, the church is divided into three naves, featuring highlights like a wooden crucifix attributed to Anton Maria Maragliano, an 18th century wooden statue and a Baroque altar which dates back to 1750.
