“Beautiful church - well worth the visit”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

We happened on the church when driving up to the Cell of St. Francis. it was 5p.m and there was an evening mass. We went inside and the singing was just spectacular, the service was in Italian and that make it all the more special in my eyes. The story of Santa Margherita was moving, I had never heard of her ... the church itself is a beauty. When you are outside in parking lot you can see the valley and the peacefulness is welcomed.

“Wonderful Church”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Drive up to the top of the mountain first and tour this church and the fort, then go back down to Cortonna. Wonderful Views from the church and from the fort. Go up to the cemetary.
