The church is prominent but doesn't look like much from the outside. Leading to the church is a compass point in black and white stones that is labeled with the winds that come from different directions. After climbing stairs to the entry level of the...More

We joined a Sunday service in this wonderful old church. With the chandeliers lit it showed off the exceptionally ornate interior. We were made welcome by a friendly congregation. Well worth a visit although not always open.

The inside of the Basilica is beautiful with chandeliers and frescos on the ceiling. We didn't get to tour because there was a service taking place. There is beautiful stone work on the outside walkway.

A lovely find in charming Camogli. Looks like so many other churches, but inside it is so lavishly decorated. Not what you might expect.

Gorgeous basilica with intricate details inside - definitely a must to visit. The fresco is finely done and it is extremely serene inside

The exterior of this church blends into the surrounding buildings. Despite being quite unobtrusive, it is well worth the climb from the beach. The interior is stunning in an ornate way. The view from the entry terrace is also delightful.

Beautiful church - a beacon of light and hope to Camogli. My daughter and I explored the exterior of the church on our last evening in Camogli. If you aren't able to attend a church service, a visit to the church is still worth your...More

We were fortunate to visit while a mass was underway and were able to enjoy the organ music, the liturgy and the singing. Also saw the figurine for the procession for the upcoming fish festival. The church is very ornate and beautiful on the inside....More
