Although it is named San Martino church (Divo Martino), it really pays great hommage to Saint George, the legendary Christian soldier and dragon-slayer. The wonderful bronze doors are modern and allude to St. Gerorge's victory over pirates set to besiege Portofino. He unleashed a storm...More

How can you not go in this church when there is a red carpet going up the steps to it? Always nice to pop into a small chapel for a moment of silence from the crowds.

This quiet, little church sits high on an opposite hill across the harbor from the Church of St. George. It is another church frequented by the local fishermen and their families for centuries. There is beautiful modern bronze work on the entrance doors and main...More
