Camogli: San Fruttuoso Abbey Entry Ticket

Camogli: San Fruttuoso Abbey Entry Ticket

Skirting the National Park that leads from Camogli to Portofino, San Fruttuoso Abbey seems for all the world like a miracle, nestling in a little creek and protected by a 16th-century tower – a fine example of a piece of architecture successfully integrated into the natural context. And yet the very inaccessibility of the site and the presence of a source of fresh water rendered it, in the 8th century, an ideal location for the foundation of a church. It is said that it was the martyr St Fructuosus himself who chose the bay, appearing in a dream to Prospero, Bishop of Tarragon, who was fleeing Spain to escape the Moors, and was searching for a place in which to safeguard the ashes of the saint. Rebuilt in the 10th century as a Benedictine monastery, from the 13th century the abbey’s fate became intertwined with that of the Doria family, who renovated its design, adding the loggia with two tiers of three-light windows and transferring here the family burial ground. In 1983, the family decided to donate the entire complex to FAI. The re-birth of this complex has been ongoing since then. The site plays host to two very different buildings, both requiring constant care. April 2017 saw the conclusion of the final restoration works, which involved the overhaul of the water source next to which the bell tower was constructed. The monastery, with its cloister and the Doria tombs, the primitive church and the parish church, the archaeological remains and the little village...only a visit in person can allow you to discover the authentic soul of this place lapped by the crystal-clear sea, which now offers visitors the option of staying in the guest accommodation – ideal for those who want to get away from it all like never before.

For anyone who wants to see these three villages, it is a clear recommendation! The crossing itself is an experience. The coast from the ship is simply unbelievably beautiful! And each of these villages has its own charm! Of course, things are not exactly cheap in the villages, or rather, they are massively overpriced, but since we knew that beforehand, we were well looked after!

We absolutely loved it!! It’s a must see. Camogli is very pretty and walkable . Very authentic! San Frutuosso the beach was amazing ! And Portofono was incredible . Only complaint is not enough time In Portofino. The price is perfect. Would definitely go again.

In the top ! The weather was good. The crew was attentive and always there to help if there was difficulty getting in or out during stopovers. To do again.

A really nice offer! Very relaxed, super friendly staff. Time flies, though, and our kids wanted to keep cooking... We highly recommend it!

So much fun. The beaches were amazing and the staff on the boat were so lovely and welcoming.
