We came across this Church as we followed our nose in the historic centre. It was crammed in-between buildings, and really didn't look very impressive from the outside.
Inside we went, not expecting much at all, and what a surprise we were in for!
It was a wow!
The Church was built between 1188 & 1189, and consecrated in 1197.
Between the years 1626-1650, the Church was rebuilt and is what we see today.
The ceiling fresco is of "the Coronation in the presence of the Father and among the heavenly hierarchy," and occupies the entire space of the Cupola. Absolutely beautiful, and in such good condition.
The High Altar has a marble statue of the "Immaculate".
This Church has many important pieces, and since the last restoration in 2004, it is considered among the most precious and best preserved of Genovese 17th century Baroque art.
