Santa Margherita Ligure Things to Do: 28 reviews and 67 photos

According to the legend, the cult of Nostra Signora is connected with the wooden statue which was found in 1783 by the local fishermen mirroring in the clear water of the gulf Corte. The statue is copy of Virgin Mary with the Christ in her left hand and a letter in right hand, which stands in the sanctuary of Messina.....
The church of San Giacomo was built in the 17th century on a site of a church from 11th century. It has Baroque facade decorated with the sculpture from 1766 by unknown sculptor. I find it almost unbeliveable for the sculpture made in the second half of the 18th century that sculptor could be unknown.....
