Loved the unexploded bomb!

A cathedral with a long and colourful history. Quite beautiful inside and the grey and white marble on the outside is beautiful.

We visited shortly after Christmas and were delighted by the stonework on the exterior and the treasures inside. Don't miss the Flemish Renaissance masterpiece in one of the side chapels, and take note of the stone masons' marks on the interior columns. Fascinating sense of history here!

After a walk in porto antico go to the duomo.Inside take a ticket of 6.5 euros and visit the treasures of the duomo.We found a treasure there.There was a golden cross containing small wood parts of the ACTUALL CROSS OF CRIST.i think there is nothing like this in all Vatican.

We arrived just before Christmas and the place had a film crew etc all around so we could go in, but it was easy to admire the beautiful architecture and different coloured stone used here..quite unusual.

Got to the outside of this building and the doors was close as if saying stay out. Was not sure if it is safe to enter or not. The lion statue outside had a sad face so that says a lot. We decided not to go in.

The design of this cathedral is one of its kind. I haven't been inside but it clearly stands out as one of the most creatively designed I have ever seen.

Really beautiful cathedral. Génova is full with little streets and se thought it was lovely how just walking around you could discover beautiful sights such as this one. Just one thing, they have formal dressing code in case you want to entre the church.

You need to be aware that the churches and Cathederal are kinky open during certain hours. Normally late afternoon to early evening. San Lorenzo is just breathtaking, wonderful architecture and typical Genova style. A must visit.

Nice church, centrally located. Probably not my favourite church in Genova, but also worth seeing. Always some fun going on outside the church.
