Small however the inside is beautiful, enjoy the architecture and design. Light a candle and say a prayer!

This church was small and quaint. It is undergoing refurbishment but it did not detract from the beautiful ambience within the building during my friend's wedding. It is at the top of a very steep mountain and the path is cobbled, great cardio workout when you reach the top! Stunning with excellent views of Portofino. Very, very romantic!

Yes, this must be the best spot for photographers. The church itself is unusual / different, unique possibly. There was even a marriage proposal accepted outside it whilst we were up there. Ahhhhhhhhh.

No disrespect intended...just a tribute to the departed and their beautiful eternal resting areas. Definitely a must see when you get to the shores of the beautiful Portofino water, look up, walk up...you'll be glad you did. Oh, and be sure to take your camera!!!

While we didn't go inside this church we walked through the Memorial in the back and I was amazed by the beauty of this place. You can see the Meditteranean while visiting friends/families that are buried here. We learned that you can only be buried here if you are a local of Portofino. Absolutely gorgeous!!!

Portofino is heaven on earth, it is a photographers mecca ! while i was there Beyonce visited and Steven Speilberg. It is truly worth the visit. I stayed in Santa Margarita, far less expensive than staying in Portofino itself.

You need to know that this church was rebuilt in the 1950s, to copy the original church. so, you will not find the ancient artwork that are in many other churches. The mosaics are wonderful,a nd the church and its front door are definitely worth a trip.

My girlfriend and I spend two days in Portofino in the beginning of October. She took one look at Castello Brown and told me there was no way she was walking all the way up there (lol). However, the Church of San Giorgio was a walk about half the distance up the mountain and very well worth it. She couldn't... More

The church is very bland, and in need of restoration. Not what you might expect in a very wealthy area.
