This church is known as the place where married Dante and where is buried Beatrice, at the tomb of whom all left messages for help.
Santa Margherita de' Cerchi is located next to the Dante's House Museum and considered it a "family church" - here he married and here is buried the love of his life, Beatrice.
The church was built in the 11th century, and in it you can feel the atmosphere of the Middle Ages. Inside it is not impressive, but inspires a special thrill everyone who enters it. Inside the church many paintings depicting the life of Dante, a large number of children's drawings.
At the grave of Beatrice is a basket in which all visitors put notes asking for help - who are looking for love, someone good luck in business, but one is sure that the wish will certainly come true.
