Chiesa di S.Giorgio, Portofino: 7 reviews and 15 photos


Saint George Church is a lovely yellow Church on top of Portofino?s promontory and and dates back to the 12th century. It was built in romanic style but it was alterd two times, the first time in 1691 and the second in 1760. During WWII the Church was completely destroyed by a bomb so in 1950 it was built again. This time no alterations were made and the present building looks like the church did in 1960.

From the Church you can have compelling views of Portofino ? so it?s worth walking up there for some good aerial photos. It takes only a few minutes from the square in the centre of town.
With the sea at your back.
