We went in on a Sunday just before the mass started and were honoured to hear the priest and congregation sing a most beautiful hymn which we managed to record. A beautiful church that we would have wished to have spent much more time in.

Another in an array of beautiful churches and art made possible by the affluence of Genoese trade. In this case, Ruben masterpieces grace the walls.
