Chiesa di Santa Margherita - Alba

Chiesa di Santa Margherita – Alba



Near Corso Langhe you can find some structures of the end of the XIII century that belonged to a rural chapel dedicated to Saint Margherita of Antiochia. In particular you will note a semicircular apse enriched with three single-lancet windows and little bows in the upper part. This chapel has a late romanesque, almost gothic style.

The building has been recently renewed. Today it belongs to the parish of Saint Margherita.

You can visit the building only from the outside.

The description of the Church of Santa Margherita is in collaboration with
