Nice viewing point especially since the Castello was closed for a private event when we were there. Go a little to the right in direction of the cemetary for the best views. When we were there, they were filming an old movie in front of the church. Interesting situation to observe how the director was working with the actors.

In this very exclusive (about 500 residents)and beautiful town, this church, high on a hill overlooking the city, harbor and Mediterranean Sea is quite spectacular and very close to the San Martin Church. It is a heck of a walk up here but well worth the journey

The colors of Portofino are so enchanting and the yellow of this church is unreal! The climb up is easy, beautiful views all around. It feels like a secret spot. Try, try to not go when the tourists are there!

Having decided to take a day visiting Portofino, we took the path up to the little church of San Giorgio.

The church itself was small but lovely. There was the opportunity to contribute to the lighting of a candle. The views outside the church was stunning.

Behind the church is a small, yet beautiful crematorium which we walked round.

Worth a visit for sure.

Weatherbeaten but soulful church - very different, much simpler, than others in the area. Terrific location, looking out to sea on two side, with a view of Portofino on the third.

We walked up the hill to the church which we loved. There were visitors singing beautiful religious music which added to the sense of atmosphere and history. Fantastic views of Portofino and beyond.

Well worth the 10 mins leisurely walk up to the Church from the piazza of Portofino. There are plenty of places to sit and rest along the way and the views once you reach the church are worth the effort.

Walk up to the church through tiny streets and then to the castle and then keep going round the castle down to the port. The best view points of Portofino.

A short and slightly steep hike rewards you with a pretty yellow church. But better yet is the view. You're on a very narrow and steep peninsula and on both sides of you are water. On one side is the Mediterranean, and on the other is Portofino harbor in its most classic postcard view.
If you want to climb some more you are almost at Castello Brown. And a bit further is the lighthouse.
