Taken the 20/06/08
The church was originally built in 1520 by the Franciscan monks in a late gothic style, but they didn't finish it. From 1591 the Lomellini Family got involved for more than forty years in completing and enlarging it. The church is an example of genoese manneristic-baroque and is considered by many the most beautiful church in Genoa. Inside, masterpieces by the following artists: Van Dyck, Strozzi, Piola, De Ferrari and Guidobono.
