Church of Santissima Annunziata del Vastato

Recommended
This monumental church (17C) has a 19C portico on the façade. Its luxuriant interior decoration combining gold, stuccowork and frescoes provides a typical example of the Genoese Baroque. Genoa's most prized painters contributed to decorating it (De Ferrari, Cambiaso, Piola and Strozzi). Note the decoration on the dome, with figures gathered around the balustrade and the chancel, which is lent more depth by the trompe-l'oeil architectural features.
