  • The beautiful façade and, whatever the weather, you can't help but take some photos, very nice inside though in a Baroque that I personally like a lot less, to see even the museo del tesoro

  • A grand and ornate environment with beautiful religious paintings and icons. A peaceful place with the smell of the burning offertory candles.
  • After an awed walk-around inside the Cathedral San Lorenzo, we had to take picture of ourselves. There were several friendly visitors to oblige us... ! !
  • Wonderful place in Genova. It's special to get in and pray to thanks for everything in your life. It is free but it would be nice to give some offer to the church
  • Black and white Marble is typical northern Italian and very nice. Inside the church is very open with huge ceilings and nice artwork.
  • Expect to see an impressive cathedral. The decor and architecture are really nice to see.
