Nice church using black and white marble. Unfortunately the access to most of the inside was. Lacked due to a private celebration which I found odd. Restauration of one part of the celling ongoing.

A friend gave us a guided tour of the old city of Genova and we really loved exploring this beautiful cathedral with gorgeous stain glass.

When I saw this place I fell in love with the design, architecture and the interior design. Very nice Sunday morning service with Italians.

Nice stop in central Genova, close to port and on one of the main shopping streets. An easy half an hour visit will suffice.

The facade is really beautiful and worth some examination especially around the main doors. Inside it's not very special but you can see how the church has been expanded during the centuries.

The cathedral is in the middle of town, its free entry and definitely worth a visit, the detail inside is incredible and the building itself is very impressive.

An amazing church of Saint Lorenzo... The inside is just as incredible as the outside and if you're lucky you may even hear the choir sing during a mass.
