After walking slowly up the hill in the hot sun we came upon this nice little church. The view from the top is beautiful and a great photo opportunity ! The church is nice to have a look around and there is an interesting graveyard down the steps. Definitely worth the ten minute walk and there are benches to have a rest on if you find the medium walk hard in the sun. plenty of shaded areas to get some relief from the sun.

It's a church - what more can I say?. Interesting bronze doors though, which I suspect many would just walk past.

We took the walk up and it was really worth it. The tiles on the way up and the views were amazing. It was a great part of a super day in Portofino..

We arrived in Portofino towards the end of a cruise. Walked up the very steep and winding lane to this plain little church which was destroyed during World War II and rebuilt to be the same as the original. The flowers in the cemetery were lovely and the climb was worth it to see the beautiful natural harbour of Portofino from above. Enjoyed a cold beer outside one of the bars in the harbour. What a lovely place.

Walk up to see the beautiful church and surrounding view. The tiles leading up to the front door were placed in a beautiful swirl design. Have lunch by the water. A very pleasant walk - well worth the trip!
