Chiesa del Gesù e dei Santi Ambrogio e Andrea

Study the art canvas by Rubens, enjoy the mesmerizing opulence of the nave and note the influence of the Jesuits at this elegant church.

The Chiesa del Gesù e dei Santi Ambrogio e Andrea contains a fantastic array of acclaimed paintings. Dating back to the 6th century, this is one of the oldest churches in Genoa. It was reconstructed in the late 16th century with a Baroque style, while the façade was rebuilt in 1894. Examine the iconic works by Peter Paul Rubens among the many other pieces that adorn the walls. 

Snap photos of the imposing façade, with green portals and several sculptures spread across two levels. Notice the turrets and spires rising up behind the frontage.   

Admire the utter opulence of the lavish interior, decorated by abundant marble, sculptures and paintings. Stroll past the arches and columns that divide the church into several parts. The church has one of the most impressive naves in Italy. Look up at the wonderful frescoes that adorn the inside of the dome. 

Pick up the free leaflet or purchase a guidebook for a more comprehensive understanding of the works of art in this ecclesiastical gallery. Attend a Mass to hear the sweet sounds of the intricate organ and appreciate the excellent acoustics in the large nave. 

The Chiesa del Gesù e dei Santi Ambrogio e Andrea is in the Piazza Matteotti in the center of Genoa. Ride a bus to a stop in the district or take the metro to the De Ferrari station on the adjacent plaza. The church is free to enter and is open to the public daily from morning until noon and again from late afternoon until evening. After your visit relax in the marvelous Piazza Matteotti and enjoy a hot drink at a local café. Gaze up at the lavish Ducal Palace, the Curia Arcivescovile Di Genova and the G. Dagnino Museum of Jazz. See nearby sights, including the Torre Maruffo, the San Lorenzo Cathedral and the Church of San Donato.
