We joined a Sunday service in this wonderful old church. With the chandeliers lit it showed off the exceptionally ornate interior. We were made welcome by a friendly congregation. Well worth a visit although not always open.

The inside of the Basilica is beautiful with chandeliers and frescos on the ceiling. We didn't get to tour because there was a service taking place. There is beautiful stone work on the outside walkway.

A lovely find in charming Camogli. Looks like so many other churches, but inside it is so lavishly decorated. Not what you might expect.

The exterior of this church blends into the surrounding buildings. Despite being quite unobtrusive, it is well worth the climb from the beach. The interior is stunning in an ornate way. The view from the entry terrace is also delightful.

Beautiful church - a beacon of light and hope to Camogli. My daughter and I explored the exterior of the church on our last evening in Camogli. If you aren't able to attend a church service, a visit to the church is still worth your...More
