    While living in Genoa for a long time, I didn't know about this gem of the historic centre. Very good the volunteer guides. Not to be missed.

    Santa maria one of the lesser known churches of the city but in my opinion one of the most beautiful ... Beautiful Genoese style inside ... owns an ancient cloister from which you can enjoy the city harbour ... recommended visit

    The complex was of the Dominicans and been abandoned by them. The Church is characterized by the reuse of Grand columns and Roman capitals of unknown origin. The tour is led by volontaribgentili and very competent that illuminate different aspects of art and history of each structure and/or opera. The Annunciation of the porch on the first floor is the model example. A hidden gem that is worth the visit.

  • Nice small church. The location is full of narrow streets and is your typical non metropolitan Italy
  • The workplace of Jacobus de Voragine. Expert volunteers who like to appeal to familiarize one with the architectural history of the Dominican convent inaccessible except for the nave and explain the artworks of the ex voto tablets up to the announcement of painting (Annunciazione) of Jos a Amman of Ravensburg (Giusto D'alemagna). You should take enough time and leisure for this beautiful experience; I have received an individual and personal private guided tour (in Italian).

  • A church with many stories from ancient times. A number of details and symbols give up puzzles. Friendly and technically sound guides like to explain the Church with its treasures. For me a must for a visit to Genoa.
