SAN FRUTTUOSO: Christ of the Abyss
In the heart of Portofino Park lies a beautiful creek that can be reached only by sea or by one of the hiking trails on the mount of Portofino, which houses a Benedictine abbey, owned by the FAI (Italian Environmental Fund)..
In the crystal-clear waters surrounding San Fruttuoso cove, about 15meters below the surface, you can admire the poignant Christ of the Abyss bronze statue. With His arms extended upward, He appears to beckon divers to Him.
Additionally, San Fruttuoso has a few restaurants and a beach to make your visit even more enjoyable.
To reach this magical place you can opt for the ferry line number 2 directly in Chiavari harbour or sail your own boat – it’s only 6.70 nautical miles.
