Chiesa del Gesu e dei Santi Ambrogio e Andrea, Genoa

(4.7/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Dating back to the sixth century, Chiesa del Gesu e dei Santi Ambrogio e Andrea is one of the oldest remaining churches in the area, with one very striking feature: its ceiling. Look up to see this masterwork completely coated in bright paintings and gilded in gold. If you manage to visit during sunset, the Baroque-style interior seems to glow under the sunlight. While much of the interior is original, the outside was completely reconstructed in 1894.

  • It is a small church located in secluded square that is on the way out to the Church of San Lorenzo of Piazza de Ferrari. Cute shape of the tower at the back of the front.

  • I rarely enter a church, except in Italy, because one can often find magnificent works of art.. This is the case of the one above the façade is sober is the very rich interior

  • Located next to the fucale Palace, we took the time to visit this church. The Interior is magnificent, richly decorated and provides a multitude of details. There are also 2 paintings of Rubens inside... I would highly recommend you to discover this magnificent Church.

  • It's a small church located near piazza dei Ferrari, of Baroque style and decorated up to the limit to not find not only corner without marble or gold. Impressive.
