"The pearl of the Portofino rock" San Fruttuoso by gmg61
San Fruttuoso Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 50 photos
In a cove along the coast of the Portofino rock, you find the Abbey of San Fruttuoso, surrounded by a tiny fishermen's village.
The cove was a pirates shelter and then was acquired by the Dorias, who ruled the territory during the Middle Age.
The Abbey was built during the 10° century but during the years it underwent many changes: the façade we can still admire was made during the XIII century. As a consequence, in the same building various architectonical styles are mixed, from romanic to Baroque
You can visit (but you have to pay an extra fee if you want to take pictures inside the building) the church, a museum, and the graves of th Doria family
