It is very beautiful, but very small. 2 euro to visit, but worth it. It is only 2 Sistine Chapels in the world and I've seen both of them now

The place has an interesting history and is worth the €2 entrance fee. It is rather ornate in style and like so many other places in Italy.

Like most chapels in Europe , it is attractive , serene & awe-inspiring. Located in the center of the city , easily accessible, it embodies the spirit of Savona ! Must see if in Savona !
