Via San Lorenzo and the cathedral, Genoa: 23 reviews and 75 photos
San Lorenzo, built in Romanesque-Renaissance style, is the city cathedral and the seat of the Archbishop of Genova. The cathedral was founded in the 5th and 6th century AD, devoted to San Siro Bishop of Genova. After the fire in 1296, provoked by fights between Guelphs and Ghibellines, the building was partly restored and partly rebuilt. The facade was completed in the begining of the 14th century, same as inner colonnades.
In the 16th century the Perugian architect Galeazzo Alessi was comissioned to plan the reconstruction of the entire building but he exectuted works just partly. The construction ended later on in the 17th century.
