Images of San Fruttuoso to give a photographic tour of this Levante Riviera seaside town.
Portofino Nature Park has flora of rare natural beauty, as you will see if you take the road to the Abbey of San Fruttuoso. This can be reached either by means of a path that takes you past the church of San Rocco or by boat, which rounds the promontory of Punta Chiappa and goes through the Cala dell'Oro. According to tradition, this eight-century abbey was built to house the remains of the martyr San Fruttuoso.

Adding new photographs of Liguria, the Italian Rivieras and Italy every month.
San Fruttuoso, Province of GENOVA.

The fishing village of San Fruttuoso, however, is much older, going back to at least the second or third century AD. The abbey was built in the thirteenth century at the behest of the Doria family, many of whom were buried here. If you go diving, you will be able to admire the celebrated "Cristo degli Abissi", a statue by Guido Galletti, which was let down into the sea in 1954 for the protection of sailors.
Travel Hint: Travelling along the Italian Riviera to visit Liguria's coastal towns and cities is recommended by train - they are frequent, comfortable and generally on time. They also take you into the resort centres and give you an additional perspective and 'flavour' of Italian life. The car by contrast is not quite as practical and ideal as first appears. There are basically two roads along the Riviera, the 'autostrada' and the 'Aurelia'. Italian 'autostrada' can be fairly stressed environments and the coastal road (via Aurelia) is pretty in parts but very slow, passing through every little seaside town. Additionally, parking in most Ligurian coastal towns is not in abundance and can take much longer to find a space than ever imagined - during most of the year, not just in summer. With car-hire, petrol, motorway tolls and parking charges, the car soon becomes an expensive and less than ideal way of getting around - and more often than not, slower overall than the journey by train.
