  • First, careful not to go wrong input: you might end up in the ex-convent, now occupied by military hospital. The entrance to the Church is on the right side of the staircase. Just enter the porch you will find yourself in the sight of the beautiful pulpit built in the first half of 1500 on the occasion of the visit of Charles V in Sardinia. Other steps finally lead in the Jesuit church, small but rich in stuccos and Baroque decorations. It's a magical and quiet where it's easy to gather in prayer (for those who believe) or just at peace with themselves for a few minutes. Usually in the morning is open till 12.00 approximately, in the evening I think is always closed.

  • Stroll through the charming neighborhood of Stampace and near the captain's Tower pisano Grace Aaron, you immediately notice a Baroque façade which dominates San Miche Archangel. Go to church and you wonder about the triumph of the Baroque with its stucco and gold. The adjacent vestry is also worth a visit with beautiful murals and the vault. Enjoy the statues that are used for the rites of Holy week, called "Mysteries".

  • A real triumph of the Baroque. Domenico Pozzo in a exhilarating brings different styles that make up this order. In its architecture of the different chapels are recognizable material elements as the typical marbles of the shipyards of Genoa with wooden elements of Neapolitan invoice. Creating a homogeneity delicious without reaching the heaviness of esaperante Rococo which often.

  • The Church of san michele is a jewel of the Baroque, rococo neighborhood of stampace. Easily accessible both by via azuni which via ospedale, the Church contains within it the world Jesuit with its symbolism and its holy martyrs. Main entrance from the via azuni, presents the statue of the Saint who bears the sword and the scales, the latter seems genuine. Currently the left part of the establishment, once the novitiate of the Jesuits, is the seat of the military hospital of Sardinia. Entrance to the porch we find l Ambo said of Charles v, an earlier work to the Church itself, which was located in a church destroyed, once located in corso vittorio emanuele. Inside the Church is richly decorated. There are eight chapels that open circularly to the main building, each dedicated to a Jesuit sanctified. Everywhere are also the symbols of the principal and of the Bishop of the time. The sacristy and the sacristy entrance preserve treasures: statues by lonis, paintings depicting joyful and sorrowful mysteries, paintings by colombino.
