  • This large church has wonderful ceiling paintings. It has spared no expense when you built the Church. There is free access to the Church, but donations are always welcome. The Church is located in central Genoa.

  • the interiors are remarkable , very decorated . also the history of the successive periods of building this church is interesting . the square in front of the church consists of beautiful palazzos 
  • One of the oldest Catholic churches in Genoa. Located in piazza delle Vigne, in the District of la Maddalena. Considered the oldest Marian Sanctuary of Genoa, it appears that a chapel dedicated to the Virgin was built in the 3rd century. Before the year 1000 was built the Church called Santa Maria delle Vigne ". It was remodeled several times since the 13th century; also Cardinal Stefano Durazzo gave provision of new jobs to the middle of the seventeenth century. Between 1841 and 1848 the Church had a new marble façade, in neoclassical style. The changes have created a different building from the original Romanesque style by which they trace remains. Built as a Romanesque basilica with three naves, I indicate only the transept just hanging and three apses. Note that on the high altar is a statue of the Madonna, supported by figures of angels; in the chancel are eighteenth century paintings. To detect the side altars dedicated to note Genoese families of the time, the colony of Greeks living in Genoa and active arts and crafts guilds in medieval city. The right of the altar (I will mention someone) remember San Leonardo, then a painting of the Annunciation by Giovanni Andrea Carlone, the Madonna with child and Angels attributed to Giovanni Manzone (circa 1465), Gregorio De Ferrari depicting Saint Michael (circa 1680). Then there are the altars of the left, with other paintings, the Bell Tower in its beauty, but especially the cloister with the houses of the canons.
