San Siro church

Historic religious building in the heart of the Old Town houses frescoes and beautiful sculptures
San Siro church, Genoa Old Town

The ancient San Siro church is located at the end of Via San Luca and close to via Garibaldi in the heart of Genoa Old City (check out the route).

Was the first Cathedral of Genoa, it was built between the 4th and 5th centuries. Inside, the works of art and the frescoes are of remarkable beauty. Great artists worked here, above all the Genoese Baroque master Giovanni Battista Carlone and the French sculptor Pierre Puget, author of the splendid Altare Maggiore.

A curiosity: San Siro no longer has its bell tower. It was demolished in the early 1900s due to structural problems and never rebuilt.
