Also known as the Church of St. John the Baptist, this is situated in Piazza Don Giovanni Minzoni in the province of La Spezia. This is the parish under the Diocese of La- Spezia- Sarzana- Bruganto.
The present structure that we see was built around the 13th- 14th century and later was renovated in the Baroque period. The design and exteriors are beautiful with the double color tone of marble white and dark serpentine. There is a large marble white rose window, under which you will find the beautiful fresco depicting the Baptism of Christ.
The interiors are equally mesmerizing but the architectural style is a typical Gothic one here with 3 different naves. There is also the Bell Tower that was earlier on a watch tower and the fortifications later done by the Republic of Genoa.
