Named after the patron saint of the city, built in 1145, first as the Chapel of the Pieve of St. Stephen of the Bridge, the oldest church of Sestri Levante, it became a parish in 1151. It draws its name from the bishop of Mira, located on the "island", headland of Sestri Levante. The church, in stone, recalls the Romanesque style of Lombardy with traces of Gothic influence (for example in the acute sixth arch of the protiro). Arranged according to the typical middle east-west orientation. Surrounded by vegetation, the beautiful facade is barely visible. Unfortunately it is rarely opened to the public, or at wedding celebrations (highly requested). Too bad.
Stone church, a garden with a few bench and trees overlooking the bay sown by vegetation. Behind the church small paths with steps leading up to a hill. Attention, from those paths you can NOT reach the marconi television antenna.
