Probably the most ancient church in Genoa [1049 bc], named after the martyrs Cosma and Damiano [III century], twin brothers, physicians who practiced their profession accepting no payment for their services.
They are the patron saints of barbers and doctors.
The skull and tibia of the latter are presumably among the relics in the church.
Astonishing beautiful and simple romanic church.

The church stands in a small square (Piazza di S. Cosimo) in the historic center and at the foot of the Castello hill, practically the area in which the city developed in Roman times.

The church, which is in Romanesque style (11th century), then underwent subsequent renovations while the presbytery and apses belong to the original construction.

The façade, simple and made of stone with traces of the ancient rose window, has a beautiful portal, while the two single-lancet windows and the large semicircular window were built in the 17th century and the octagonal bell tower has a valuable appearance.

The interior, which has three naves, preserves a few significant works of art such as the paintings Esther and Ahasuerus by Bernardo Castello (16th century), the Madonna and Child and Saints Cosmas and Damian healing the sick by Gioacchino Assereto ( 17th century), a medieval baptismal font, the pipe organ (1764) by Filippo Piccaluga and son and a beautiful 17th century marble statue of the Immaculate Conception by Pierre Puget.

The church is usually open on Saturdays and Sundays and, if you happen to be there, it is worth a visit!
