  • Small church near the old port, the intrigues, but the beauty is external inside with an unusual marble production.

  • Pretty elevated Church at the top of small shops in the middle of a square lined with magnificent palaces. Beautiful facades painted, pretty grids but not always possible to get...

  • We heard two versions of construction of San Pietro in Banchi! First: the existing building of the 16th century wondering what architect Bernardino Canton applied so-called self-funding — at the base of the Church placed space for lease dealers. Due to this church and got its name. These shopping areas we saw with their own eyes now. Second: the banks were the big showdown between rich Lomellini, who wanted this place to arrange regular stalls and simple townspeople, who vowed after the next plague to erect a church here. In the end we came to a mutual compromise, giving under the lower floors and benches at the top, bequeathed to the church building. Very beautiful inside and outside the Church. Notable because it is a statue of Jesus Christ without arms. We in the Church at that time were the only visitors and came to us clergyman to asked: How do we!? To know that we are from Russia, a servant (an old man) perked up, then apologizing asked: do we know English, German or French!))) The fact is that the church history brochures were only in those languages. Received in English! It was very nice!))))

  • Very small but full of atmosphere and spirit. Beautifully implanted into the everyday life of the neighborhood.
  • Half church ⛪. Half shopping mall.
  • great place
  • Walking through the streets of Genoa to find this church, a surprise. Very beautiful and special to visit

  • The special feature of this church is that it is built over some shops: because of this rare and unique solution, refers us to the history of the building. On the site of the Church that we see today, there was another, very old (it was built long before the year 1000: pare in 972) which was known as San Pietro della Porta, and whose memory persists today in a way that is called "via di San Pietro in the Door".
