The church is super decorated, and very interesting. It would be a good idea to carry a hand mirror to avoid neck ache from craning to see upward.

Been many times to Genova and always return to this place. It is magical. Really suggest for those that love architecture and Italy. Paintings are worth seeing, atmosphere worth feeling.

This Romanesque church is one of the finest in Genoa: the atmosphere is wonderful and mysterious. We liked it so much we went back for a second visit. There is a fabulous Flemish triptych altarpiece in a side chapel which is unmissable.

Just go and discover yourself. A tiny small church at the hearth of the genoese movida, offers a jump in art, fresh and pray. Worth a trip .

The church itself deserves a visit. You cannot miss the Trittico by Joos van Cleve and the Madonna del Latte by Barnaba da Modena
