Escorted Rail Tours to San Fruttuoso
See the stunning underwater Christ statue
Located between Camogli and Portofino lies a deep inlet, in which sits a small fishing village called San Fruttuoso. The village is famous for its beautiful abbey - the Abbey of San Fruttuoso. Over the course of its history the abbey has had many uses. As well as its monastic use, it has been a home for fishermen, a pirate den and for many years was the property of Doria Princes. Standing underwater in the sea in front of the abbey is a bronze statue of "Christ in the Abyss". The statue is clearly visible during calm sea conditions, and is said to protect local divers.
