What to see in Portofino: historical monuments
Among the monuments of historical interest in Portofino, there are the Oratory of Santa Maria Assunta - a splendid example of Gothic architecture -, the Church of San Martino and the Church of San Giorgio, reachable with a pleasant walk that leads to its promontory. Promontory which, if continued, offers other splendid constructions: the Brown Castle, dated 16th century and which once served as a military fortress; and the lighthouse of Punta di Capo, from which to enjoy a breathtaking view.
Portofino: what to see if you love the beach and the sea
Crossing the paths of Monte di Portofino, or taking the boat, you then reach the abbey of San Fruttuoso (a place of peace and silence, a thousand years old and in splendid contrast with the beach) while if you want to spend (at least) half a day at the beach, the most beautiful stretch of sand is located two kilometers from the center, proceeding towards Recco. Here, in Paraggi, we find a bay which is the only one in the area to host a real beach, therefore called "Portofino beach", much loved by celebrities.
But Portofino is also famous for a sculpture known all over the world: we are talking about the Christ of the Abyss, a bronze statue placed in 1954 on the seabed of the bay of San Fruttuoso, between Camogli and Portofino within the Portofino protected marine natural area. It is located 17 meters deep and was created by the sculptor Guido Galletti. Dives are organized every year to visit it and this attraction attracts divers from all over the world every time
