  • Among the most characteristic corners of Genoa, not far from Piazza De Ferrari and the Cathedral of San Lorenzo, Piazza San Matteo remembers par excellence the Doria family. Inside there is the homonymous Church, built in 1125 as a family Chapel of Doria. Surrounded by buildings with characteristic black and white bands, the Church, in the middle of the 16th century, at the behest of Andrea Doria, was the subject of a decorative makeover inside and in the crypt of the beautiful cloister, built in 1308, quadrangular and with the arches supported by small columns, contains the tomb of the famous Admiral. It is a great surprise, nestled among the many alleys, which appears suddenly in the eyes of the visitor.

  • The square, one of the most beautiful cities of Italy, collects all the buildings inhabited by the family of Oria and gathered around the Church of Saint Matthew Church deprived of family. Art and history cohabit and do you kidnap out of time

  • The square of San Mateo is located at the end of the climb of San Matteo, cross Piazza Ferrari. The Church is very famous for its history and beauty. Too bad the cloister adjoining the Church was closed and we could not see it.
