It is a site to adore. The frontage can be overwhelmingly stupendous. With its distinct B&W Romanesque striped exterior. It has unbelievable frescoes interior with holy relics. The smell of candles and incense heighten one's experience, even if one isn't necessarily religious, one can sense...More

Perhaps the exterior is more stunning than the interior, but both are worth going to see. When the sun shines on the exterior, it is stunning.

Magnificent church but like many historical buildings, need maintenance and cleaning of stones/marble to show its beauty.

Every inch of the cathedral is a work of art. A true masterpiece. Nearly onr thousand years old, but not losing any of its glitter. It is a definite must see when you are in Genoa

Dominant-looking building in front of the biggest piazza in the old city. Very interesting from a architectural standpoint and very important from a historical one.

This church is really nice. It has a mix of Romanesque and Gothic design and even has an unexploded WWII shell inside. The very tall bell tower is also striking.

I went to this catheral several times, get a guidethere are a lot of stories behind it. Inside you will see a unexploded bomb that was sent directly to the church but didn’t explode, a miracle. It,s architecture and details all hold a secret !
