Religious Site Church
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.

  • In the 17 th century Church genre, which is hard to beat. It is stunned by the ricjesse of the Church, its pilers dores, frescoes on the ceiling, the paintings of Rubens and others. Those who like sobriety will not appreciate not. Those who love the classic baroque of good gput will love.

  • In Piazza Matteotti stands the Church of Jesus, it is called the Church of Saints Andrew and Ambrose. When entering the church you can see the sculptures in the niches on the façade of these Saints (XlX century). Outside of the inconspicuous "grey mouse" and zajdjosh the inside straight the Queen!))) The rich interior of the Church is astounding, and when the eye you get paintings by Rubens, then it will be riding the Rapture.

  • This lovely Church is in the Centre of Genoa, next to the Doge's Palace, and behind piazza de ferraris, so easily accessible. In this church, with free access, you can see a couple of paintings by Rubens and other interesting works of art. We walked along one of the routes suggested by the data from the Office information leaflet, then to church lists a couple of pictures and information on the link between Rubens and the city Genoa.

  • Awesome! Of particular interest are the depictions of sacred scenes placed in relief through frescoed panels in the domes and on different ceilings of the Church.
