“Glorious Italian gothic”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 via mobile

A must see if you're in Genoa. Typical black and white stone exterior, typical overdone ornamentation inside. But just sit in one of the seats in the nave and take it all in. We were lucky on our visit - it was closed, with no notices about opening times. Turns out it's closed 12-3 - just to take note.

An impressive building located in the heart of Cenova. There are plenty of small pretty cafes around. Cappuccino should be drink here.

“Layers of history”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

Very very interesting, this building has been manipulated in centuries and offers fantastic paintings and sculptures.
The piazza outside is one of the most lively places in town.

“Excellent cathedral”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

Beautiful architecture and interesting facades on all sides. The black and white striped stonework is very dramatic and some of the carving is beautiful. The doorways are all different and interesting. Another must on any list of sightseeing, and its free!
