This is a really lovely church dedicated to the Patron Saint of Bordighera with a rich history. Beautifully restored. The setting is gorgeous- high above the sea with fabulous views over the marina and out to sea - but easily accessible. In the 3 weeks...More

Nice small church located in the coast of Bordighera. Nice views of the Costa Azurra. I love to walk by when I'm in Bordighera.

This ancient church, dating back to the 4th century, medieval foundations visible through glass floor panels, Romanesque architecture extant in the restored walls, is a tiny chapel right on the rocks by the sea. One can only imagine the history that has happened to this...More
