The outside is a little underwhelming but my mind was blown away inside. The craftsmanship of the work is something else and significantly impressive. We arrived during a mass and out of respect remained at the back but there was a sign stating tours in...More

One of the most impressive churches in the region and the most impressive in Genova, this church has every wow factor you can imagine and is completely free to visit. It is closed from noon - 3:30 on weekdays. Photography is freely allowed.

I enjoyed our visit to this extremely ornate church but my wife does not like interiors such as this, where you can feel the patrons/designers were showing off their wealth.

This Church looks plain from the outside then once you are inside it is anything but plain! Beautiful paintings on the ceiling and lovely altars. Peaceful and quiet inside so ideal for prayer. It is in the city centre and not far from Piazza de...More

Perhaps the most beautiful church in Genoa. Richly decorated with original paintings by PP Rubens almost too good to be true.

This is one of the best church interiors in Genoa, far more impressive than the nearby cathedral. Brilliant colours and good lighting add to the splendour.

I visited the this magnificant church during the evening service and was amazed at the architecture which is embossed with gold features & paintings. The piazzas and palaces around the church are also worthy of detailed exploration! Recommended!

The shortened, reduced footprint of this church is essential to its attractiveness. This really is multum in parvo. Everything in it is decorated - the roof, the walls and domes. Polychrome marble in some of the 4 side-altars. A beautifully-carved Nativity scene under the second...More

We went in on a Sunday just before the mass started and were honoured to hear the priest and congregation sing a most beautiful hymn which we managed to record. A beautiful church that we would have wished to have spent much more time in.
