Having gone through various incarnations – a Benedictine monastery, a pirates’ den, a humble home of fisherfolk and then, for centuries,
the property of the Princes of Doria – the Abbey of San Fruttuoso is today an utterly unique place, where the work of Man has been
pleasingly integrated with that of Nature. Set within the breathtaking bay that opens up between Camogli and Portofino,
the Abbey is a pearl dating from the 10th to the 13th centuries, which radiates out from the deep inlet on the coast of the promontory.
