No different to the many we have seen. It just seems everything is gold plated inside, well it's at least gold leaf. Absolutely amazing and beautiful. I know that the house of the lord can be just a tiny shack on the outskirts of town,...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.

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!
