This stunning little church is perched on the hill just off the piazza. It’s an easy walk (perhaps slippery when it rains). The ground mosaic on the exterior is simple but beautiful - made from rocks gathered along the shore. Inside this church is opulent,...More

The church is just a few steps away from the main square and dates back to the 12th century. From the outside, the church doesn't look special, but visiting the interior is quite a must. Climbing the steps in front of the church is worth...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 beautiful church is located a short distance up a hill from the center of Portofino. The interior is decorated with colorful paintings and statues.

Locals frequent this church for mass. You can see its facade from the main square and hear its bells ringing every hour

This magnificent church with its typical striped facade has an amazing interior. The altars are adorned with gold, the ceiling is painted like the Sistine chapel, the sculptures remind me of St Peter's in Rome. There is a beautiful bell tower too and the bell...More
