San Donato is a church in Genoa, Northern Italy.It dates from the 12th century and is in Romanesque style. It became a parish under archbishop Siro il Porcello, and was consecrated on May 1, 1189.After the bombardment of 1684 it was restored several times, being again consecrated on December 4, 1892. Other restorations in 1946-1951 have kept its Romanesque appearance.The interior contains a Madonna by the 14th-century painter Nicolò da Voltri; a St Joseph, by Domenico Piola; and a marble relief of the Baptism of Christ, started by Ignazio Peschiera and completed by his pupil Carlo Rubatto. There is also a tryptich (1515) by Joos van Cleve representing The Adoration of the Magi; the person who commissioned the work Stefano Raggi with Guardian Saint ; and a Mary Magdalen. This is topped by a Crucifixion scene with Mary and St John the Evangelist.

  • One of the most beautiful churches of the ancient city. Inside pictorial treasures. Besides the beauty of the Church itself. Not to be missed

  • Wandering through the narrow streets famous for nightlife I come across this church. Famous as the picture of the Virgin of milk. The Church is well taken care of and when I visit a wooden Triptych was under restoration on site because of some cracks. The entire visit is accompanied by a gentle background music. In front of the Church also for lovers will find the shop Hempatia-The bulldog

  • The Church is beautiful, unique architecture and in my opinion well maintained. Beautiful also the Virgin and child, nursed, unique and very old. Too bad for the "perpetuity", a person who has nothing to do with the Church, is not a man of the church a person so rude. Shame really
