Stumbled into it by accident. We were walking by and saw this plain exterior church with door opened. So we just walked in to check it out with no expectation. But the first sight was Wow. It is the most beautifully decorated church in Genoa...More

This church is not another church. It has an old and ordinary outside looks, awesome interior. It is on the road and could be seen while passing.
