The crypt of Andrea Doria

Andrea Doria is remembered as one of the most important members of the family, if not the most important. At his death, Montorsoli was commissioned to build the crypt of the captain, awarded the prestigious title of "Defensor" for his actions to protect Christianity. The space was recovered under the altar of the church. To access it you go down a staircase of white marble, the same that completely covers the environment. In the center there is the tomb of the prince, a sarcophagus surmounted by two angels to surround the effigy.

The white marble covers the walls of the crypte that still today houses the sepulchre of Andrea Doria
