La Cervara

5 km from Santa Margherita Apartments.

At the edge of the sea, on the cape between Santa Margherita and Portofino, La Cervara is an abbey built in 1361 by a group of Benedictine monks. It has come to us throughout a very long and troubled history and finally brought back, in recent years, to its ancient splendour. In 1912 the abbey was declared National Memorial. Today it hosts a lot of cultural events.

Its monumental Italian garden, leaned over the sea, it’s unique and extends on two levels, connected by arbours and rungs.
Guided tours, from March to October, represent a way to discover the charm, the history and the beauty of La Cervara.
