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 altar. Outside courtyard has a stunning design in smooth stones.

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 can be heard ringing all over Portofino.It's a steep climb but worth it!

I am not suggesting, this as an appropriate or respectful protocol, nor do I I any way wish to minimize the powerful impact and devotion that goes into the expressionism inside what upon approach initially seems a tranquil house of worship. Nevertheless, taking in the incredible array of compelling details inside Chiesa San Martino can be quite imposing for one... More

This church has a simple exterior with a surprisingly beautiful interior. The ceiling was especially beautiful. The views overlooking the city below were really beautiful. Thought this was well the time to spend a bit of time viewing despite all the wonderful things to see in Portofino.

We were wandering around and came to this chiesa. It was nice and work a look if you find yourself standing in front of it. Beautiful stained glass windows and some good statues and frescos.
