    Chiesa di San Matteo

    Piazza San Matteo
    Genoa, 16123
    +39 010 868 7452
    The church was founded in 1125 by Martino Doria. Renovated in a Romanesque-Gothic style in 1278, it represents one of the most interesting noble churches in Genoa. The church has a black and white façade with carvings showing the feats achieved by family members. The church was renovated during the sixteenth century by Admiral Andrea Doria, who wanted to make it his personal mausoleum. G.B.Castello, "the Bergamasco" and L.Cambiaso both contributed to the frescoes. The crypt is entirely covered with very valuable stuccoes by Montorsoli and Cosini. An interesting detail is that the adjacent cloister, which you can enter by making a small donation to the sexton, was built by a Venetian artist who had been captured during one of the frequent battles with Venice. They took advantage of his talents whilst he was in prison.
