The most evocative churches on the sea in Liguria
Il church wedding it is one of the most requested in Italy.
One of the Italian heritages envied all over the world are sacred places, rich in history and art.
Certainly there is no shortage of churches and chapels in our region, almost in every Ligurian town you can find the imposing cathedrals and basilicas as well as small churches located in the most surprising places that embellish our territory.
The Roman style e Gothic the Ligurian churches of our coast predominate.
I would like to illustrate in this article some beautiful churches and chapels selected by me for my weddings, all very small and intimate and in unexpected places, some are located overlooking the sea, others immersed in the Mediterranean vegetation.
On the eastern coast, one of the best known is the church of S. Nicolò di Capodimonte in Camogli, located in the hamlet of Route of Camogli , reachable after a short walk. The effort is generously rewarded as soon as you begin to glimpse this magnificent building.
Same name as the previous one, one of the most requested places of worship is certainly the Church of San Nicolò dell’isola, located on the promontory of Sestri Levante, built in 1151, enjoys a unique view of the bay of silence.
Moving towards Chiavari, in the area of the Graces there is a small sanctuary called Sanctuary of Our Lady of Grace, facing the Ligurian coast and clearly visible from the sea.
Of great scenic impact, especially inside, where there are wonderful frescoes that make the sanctuary a real jewel.
In the Riviera del Ponente I have selected equally particular churches, the church of S. Martino present in the most famous village of this coast: Borgio Verezzi. Wonderful ancient village characterized by a panoramic view of the sea.
Finally, in the suggestive Riviera dei Fiori and in the delightful town of Bordighera, famous destination a few kilometers from Imperia. Colors, aromas but also flavors of a land that offers a delightful historic center, tangle of alleys, archi, courtyards and squares, here it is the church of Sant’Ampelio, my absolute favorite in this area.
