Beautiful Views but don't overlook behind the church where the cemetery is

Stopped in Portofino on a cruise, would definitely go back. Walked up and up and up to the church. Beware it is not for the feint of heart especially in the July Heat!! WOW must... read more

Lovely views from the plaza out front. Lovely interior - notice the bronze bas relief doors. This is a "modern" (c. 1950's) reconstruction of the original church (built c. 12th century in the Lombard style and subsequently re-modeled in the Baroque style) that was destroyed in WWII, but that should not deter you at all from a visit. Interesting local... More

This gem of a church is at the top of a hill, and gifts you wonderful views of Portofino and the Golfo di Tigullio from the piazza it's at. The church is austere yet very moving. Beautiful hike if you're visiting!

Stopped in Portofino on a cruise, would definitely go back. Walked up and up and up to the church. Beware it is not for the feint of heart especially in the July Heat!! WOW must bring water for the walk. The views are beautiful all around the small church, but take the adventure and walk behind it.

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.
