My family and I spent a day in Genoa and this was one of the first things we stumbled upon while walking around the city. It's a tucked away beauty; I loved taking photos of the exterior, however they didn't let us girls in because of our clothes. If you want to see the inside of this cathedral, or any... More

we managed to sneak in even though supposedly shut. Not as impressive as some but worth a quick visit. The outside is very attractive though and you do sort of just come across it when wandering streets of Genoa

The overall experience of the architecture and art is a sensory experience. The Matteo Civitali sculptures in a side chapel are well worth the search. Civitali was a late 15th century master from Lucca who is not well known outside of artist and scholars circles.

The Cattedrale is a must for anyone coming to Genoa. A little bit hidden in the narrow streets of the centre. Be aware of the "lunch break". It closes between 12:30 and 14:00.

This Cathedral is compact.It has beautifully painted ceiling and has some lovely paintings on the wall. It is now undergoing refurbishment, near the Altar.It has a nice facade, almost neoclassical. Worth a visit.

We saw a LOT of cathedrals, churches, enthralling buildings and scenery of every sort. But this was a standout. Even the kids were impressed and their attention was held for the length of our visit.
