The Shrine of the Infant Jesus, the Basilica has the shape of a Latin cross, with a single nave.
According to the Fathers and Artists wanted to achieve something beautiful and majestic to honor Jesus, the Infant. The Renaissance style facade dominates the wide square and is located at the center of two cloisters with arcades; on the mountain side stands the bell tower. All images, especially mosaics and coat-of-arms speak about Infant Jesus, Carmel and Arenzano.
Those who enter the Holy Temple, feel an atmosphere of prayer. Here, everything inspires the elevation of the mind to God. Above all, in the center you can see the throne of the Infant Jesus and our gaze is immediately brought to Him. The central nave is the oldest part of 1908 (year of Inauguration), with stuccoes, decorations, stained glass typically Carmelite Chapels. The transepts instead built in the 1960s are crowns. In them, as on the counter-facade dominate the ceramic works by Angelo Biancini.
