  • The Basilica offers a glance to the imposing colonnade is situated centrally and close to the beach. Also interesting is the Interior with some works of merit.

  • This basilica with the beautiful Headland "island" overlooking a lovely square nestled between two bays of Sestri Levante. In my view this church with big columns is the most beautiful, unusual and majestic. For fans of Baroque interiors are rich in gold marble, frescoes and paintings.

  • Given that it is not easy to find, especially in small towns, churches with imposing portico with ionic columns (typically the style is richer Corinthian) as it gets inside you are immersed in an understated austere spirituality and rich at the same time as the frescoes on the walls and around the high altar is Baroque (a bit battered in some parts but almost totally accesible). They suggest the intention of painting by the artist to give solemnity to the sacred place which, being located in a fishing village, could not at the time afford the luxury of marble reproducing than painting. The artists then wanted to, with great mastery of perspective (especially around the main altar) give deliberately expand optical sensation drawing colonnades almost to suggest the presence of a "virtual" really high spaces as only paintings and not real. The real wonder of the place is the "Santo Cristo", dated wooden sculpture by Crucifix venerated in Melbourne where the ancient Chronicles tell you came by sea and now venerated. For the skeptics will say that it is highly likely considering that can be by sea arrived on the beach for example after a shipwreck of any ships.
