Palazzo Doria Spinola (Prefettura)

1 Largo Eros Lanfranco
Genoa, 16121
+39 010 557 4096
Located on the corner of Via Roma and St. Catherine's Hill, this was built between 1541 and 1543 for the Admiral Antonio Doria, cousin of Andrea, presumibly designed by B Cantone and G. B. Castello, known as 'il Bergamasco'. The frescoed façade, today barely discernible, was painted by the Calvi school (16th century), while the splendid internal decorations are the work of F Calvi and the two Cambiasos: Giovanni and his son Luca. A visit to the split level courtyard is a must: it is one of the best examples of 16th century Genovese architecture, interestingly frescoed with the topographical plans of the major cities of the time. There are magnificent depicitions of Venice, Milan, Florence, Jerusalem, Anversa, Genova and Naples. Admission is free
