An impressive building located in the heart of Cenova. There are plenty of small pretty cafes around. Cappuccino should be drink here.

Very very interesting, this building has been manipulated in centuries and offers fantastic paintings and sculptures. The piazza outside is one of the most lively places in town.

Its majestic, its fabulous as far as cathedrals go. Great art dominates the walls , tall columns of black and grey stone dominate the central space the stain glass windows are masterpieces in themselves.

Beautiful architecture and interesting facades on all sides. The black and white striped stonework is very dramatic and some of the carving is beautiful. The doorways are all different and interesting. Another must on any list of sightseeing, and its free!

Don't miss the unexploded bomb from WWII. God saved this beautiful gem for us to enjoy! The signature black and white exterior is notable.

When you have a walk from Piazza Ferrari to the old harbour, this amazing building invites you in. Except the invitation. You feel comfort and peace.
