Stumbled into this church completely on accident but so grateful we did. This is an absolutely stunning place. Put it on your list of must sees if you are walking around Genoa. Fantastic surprise and it is free!

We only went inside this church by accident, but what a surprise we were in for. The interior is not only huge, but it rivals San Lorenzo for ostentation. Another free attraction, but more than worth a look if you are wandering around in the...More

This church was just below our B&B. It is being extensively renovated on the outside. It was lovely and knowing that the Bishop lived in the room that we stayed in made it so much more interesting.

It was a rainy day and I was wandering around the narrow streets of Genova, when I saw a small church. I entered... it is shockingly big inside with beautiful wall and ceiling paintings. Unfortunately it was very dark as there was no artifical lights...More

With many beautiful churches in Genoa, this one is my favourite so far, simply because it was not as expected. From the outside, it is not much to look at. It is tucked away in the corner of some small laneways and it is easy...More
