Located along the way leading from Camogli to Portofino, discover the masterpiece of ancient Ligurian architecture, the San Fruttuoso Abbey.


  • Standing tall since the 10th century, San Fruttuoso Abbey welcomes you to a quaint escape at this Ligurian monastery.
  • Ascend the stone steps to find yourself in the heart of this church set in stone and wander through its columned alleys.
  • Glimpse at the centuries-old artifacts recovered by FAI during restoration, and walk through the Lower Cloister to see the Doria family tombs.
  • Admire views from the triple-mullioned Gothic windows framing the azure sea, and absorb the sound of the waves from the octagon bell tower.
  • Fun Fact: A statue of Jesus Christ, known as "Christ of the Abyss", is present 56ft under the sea off the San Fruttuoso coast.

A Pearl in a Creek

The white dome of San Fruttuoso Abbey is visible from a distance, nestled amidst rocks and lush green trees. Dating back to the 10th century, the abbey is a testament to Ligurian architecture, bordered by the cyan sea. Hike through the National Park of Portofino to reach this monastery, or set sail on the Mediterranean Sea to arrive at the coast of San Fruttuoso.

Charming Columns & Vintage Arches

Founded by the Order of Saint Benedict, the church harbors an octagonal church tower built with a Byzantine-style spherical top. As you stroll through the lower cloister of the abbey, discover the tombs of members of the noble Genoan Doria family from the 13th century. The tombs are sheltered under arches covered in black and white stripe patterns depicting historic Ligurian architecture.

Carved white columns line the paths leading to different sections of the church, and rooms with artifacts from centuries ago, preserved by the FAI, tell about the history of this place. Catch a glimpse of the Torre Doria, a watchtower erected in the 1500s to defend the abbey from pirates. Surrounded by crystal clear waters, this unexplored part of Liguria is perfect for those looking for a serene getaway.

Lovely historica building Staff on ticket counter not very attentive, kept on chatting to each other instead of answering questions from visitors. Not acceptable.
