Chiesa del Gesu e dei Santi Ambrogio e Andrea, Genoa

(4.7/5 based on 260+ 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.

  • A church to visit to Genoa and tourists. Church run by Jesuit priests rich in paintings of great value. I report for all Rubens, but not only. I beg to segnalre from the spiritual standpoint 21 mass celebrated by fathers Gesuti very good in their homilies, don't miss it.

  • An impressive church beside Piazza del Ferrari. Beautiful interiors
  • 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.
